The Actor’s Course

Stage Two | Class


Applications for the 2019/20 intake are NOW CLOSED.

A 10 month acting course for adults who wish to build a more in depth knowledge of acting skills and techniques. Expert tuition and industry training is provided and within the safety of a creative and supportive environment. Students will work through a syllabus to develop performance skills in relation to character creation through the study of text. Vocal and physical techniques are an integral part of the course allowing students to develop a greater understanding of voice and movement as well as exploring other theatrical techniques.

The third part of the year student will use the skills learnt and place them in a production and rehearsal setting. A fully supported public show or showcase at the end of your year means participants work with a focus and experience what it is like to work as part of a professional creative team. Students will be expected to focus on ideas between classes, and places can only be offered to those who are able to fully commit to the year.

The course includes:

  • Expert tuition and industry training on a range of performance skills
