I’m In Quarantine… Get Me Out Of Here!

It’s a jungle out there…that’s why we are staying at home, and doing drama! This term we will develop our characterisation and improvisation techniques using the 'I’m a Celebrity…' formula as a stimulus. What sort of characters will enter our camp for the weeks ahead? Who will fall out with who, and why? Will they receive video messages from family members at home? Will your character be brave enough to face the weekly Dramatucker Trials or go head to head with another in a Dingo Drama Challenge? You’ll decide!
