Dubai theatre launches workshops and talent competition

New drama classes for kids in Al Quoz

If your kids can sing, dance and put on a show, you’ll want to sign them up to become Dubai’s newest little maestros.

Little ones can now take part in The Courtyard Playhouse’s most popular and longest-running showcase, where ten kids will battle it out at the improvisation theatre in a series of scenes, songs and games.

Taking place every first Friday of the month at 11.30am, the event is all about kids joining in, helping determine scores for the contestants then voting for their favourite stories and characters until one player is crowned The Little Maestro.

As for The Courtyard’s improvised Kids’ Storytime, Little Dahlings, there’s loads of magic in store for little ones aged three and above, who will help decide on the hero of the story as well as the villains, monsters, friends and animals they meet along the way.

Expect music, singing, dancing, silliness and adventure every Friday in February at 11.30am.

Another interesting activity for the kids is the theatre’s spontaneous storytelling sessions, where they get to decide how the story unfolds – whether it’s building a spaceship, catching Santa or coming face to face with a Dragon.

“We ask the kids what comes next…” takes place every Friday in March at 11.30am and is a good exercise to teach them how to act, play, tell stories and trust their instincts in creative collaboration.

Mums and dads can choose from different membership packages starting from Dhs75 per person for a temporary membership, and Dhs500 paid annually.
From Dhs75 (per person). Timings vary. Al Quoz 1 (050 781 2269).
