The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire

Youth Summer Class – Stage Combat and Weapons

25th – 29th August 2014

Exciting and affordable 5-day course with Chris Janes

Stage combat and fighting is one of the most exciting aspects of performing and getting the realism to fool the audience takes real skill. We are lucky enough to have one of the best fight choreographers available to teach this year.

Chris Janes is a professional Armourer and Fight Choreographer. While running his weapon hire business, Cutting Edge Combat, he has worked for the BBC, feature films, on video games and many theatrical productions both professional and amateur. Chris has over 10 years of experience in the industry and enjoys working at both ends of the spectrum from short films to large projects and tv/film shoots but theatre is his first passion and amateur theatre first.

The course is open to all, members and non-members, but numbers are limited so book now.


The course runs from Monday 25th to Friday 29th August (5 days) from 10am-12pm

Open to ages 11 to 21 years inclusive


£60 for the week
