My work experience at Toonspeak was great as I got to take part in lots of different workshops which opened my eyes in ways to explore drama and inspired me by all of the great ideas that every participant had. One of the workshops I went to was going to see two theatre shows from Dundee and Jamaica from the home and away series at the tramway. The performances I saw were very moving and were performed beautifully and touched everyone in the audience.

I also got to do some office work which was mainly organising the archives photos and newspaper articles and learning about different shows Toonspeak have done over the years which made me learn so much more about the organisation and their history and see how many kids they have help to build confidence and explore drama.

 

The people who work at Toonspeak are all very lovely and were great to work with and made you feel part of everything. This week doing work experience was great for me as I want to do something in the performing arts when I leave school and this showed me all of the different jobs and ways you can be involved in the performing arts. This week was one of the best things I have done and I will always remember it.
