Lights, camera, action! Imagine your child as a star on stage… then turn imagination into action with a new drama workshop supported by the Country Arts Support Program.
Bringing Character to Life with Emotions is a drama workshop for children aged 5-15, to be held in Binalong on April 20, 2018.
Children will learn how to strengthen their understanding of a character’s emotions. The techniques they learn can be extended to real-life emotional connections, to help them build empathy and understanding. Exercises include building confidence, identifying and understanding emotions, characterisation, techniques such as voice projection, speaking with confidence, blocking scenes and presentation skills.
Under the expert eye of Janno Scanes and Robyn Sykes, children can learn tips and tricks about performance.
The day culminates in a performance by the children on stage at the Binalong Hall. Each item is short, but every child gets a chance to shine. A DVD will capture the performance for posterity. Come and see our future stars!
The workshop will run 9am-3pm at the Binalong Mechanics Institute (Binalong Hall). Numbers are limited to 20, so be quick as it is first in best dressed.
For more information contact Robyn Sykes 02 6227 4377 or
In the unlikely event that the presenters need to make changes to the program, parents and care-givers will be notified as soon as practicable.
The safety of our children is paramount. Please wear sensible clothes and safe shoes: no thongs please.
Please bring:

  • A nursey rhyme or song they know, with a character they would like to play.

  • Potential costumes and/or props for that character (optional). Other costume options/make-up/scenery will be available
  • Morning tea and lunch.


This project is supported by Arts NSW’s Country Arts Support Program, a devolved funding program administered by Regional Arts NSW and Southern Tablelands Arts on behalf of the NSW Government.
