The workshops are fun sessions for pupils to learn a bit about theatre and comedy in particular.

Paul McEneaney, Artistic Director of Cahoots NI ran the workshop in Lurgan. He focused on the main elements of comedy – looking at what makes a scene funny and how for actors, making people laugh is a serious business.

The programme is sponsored by Arts & Business and Clearpharmacy.
