Children had fun at a spooky half-term theatre workshop.

Around 80 youngsters, members of Stowmarket and Newmarket’s bRAVO Theatre groups, came together for the Halloween event. They started off with a workshop from Laura Phipps, a make-up artist who has worked on the Dr Who television series and the Harry Potter films.

This involved a Q&A session on her career and gave the children the opportunity to create cuts and bullet holes using make up. Anna Damigella, the principal of bRAVO, said: “It was a huge success, although very messy. The buzz and energy coming from the hall was electric.”

The planning for next year’s half-term workshop is already under way.

Robin KIngsland, Olivia Onyehara, Krissi Bohn, Pete Ashmore in Private Lives by Noel Coward at the Colchester Mercury

It is doubtful if Coward would like this version of the rather good play he dashed off in three days while suffering flu in Shanghai in the 1930s. Director Esther Richardson has set out to give it a more modern feel without interfering too much with the text and in this she has largely succeeded.
