Have you got what it takes to invent a BILLION DOLLAR idea?

Give your students the opportunity to get creative and maybe just a little silly in this fun drama workshop, designed to complement the performance of Billionaire Boy.

Using improvisation, expressive skills, props and a whole lot of creativity, students will develop their own idea of a lifetime … which could make them a billionaire!

Facilitated by professional actor and drama specialist Lyall Brooks, students will create a short infomercial to ‘sell’ their idea to the class and, maybe, the world.
