Led by Gerry Tebbutt, Head of Performance, students have the opportunity to work with professionals from the full-time faculty.
The School attracts international students, with courses at a reasonable cost providing either a stimulating refresher course or an introduction to basic theatre training. There is no audition procedure, everyone is welcome!
Do you want to go to drama school? Are your skills limited and hindering your chances? Do you need professional advice? Take a look their Intensive Courses which cover Acting, Singing and Dance and are intended to progress the student's ability of each discipline and how to improve audition preparation. Each course ends with a mock audition which points out what is successful and what work still needs to be done in order to achieve a place at drama school level.
The Musical Theatre Summer School course is aimed at students who wish to top up their performance skills or learn new ones, exploring further the art of performance. GSA takes musical theatre training very seriously and although this course is fun, it is also hard work. There are classes in all three disciplines, acting, singing and dancing and you will work on a mini-production.
If you are determined to pursue a career in performing arts and want to gain a place at drama school, either on an acting or musical theatre programme, then Audition Techniques is for you. Experience mock auditions, classes and audition technique – everything you need to prepare for drama school auditions.
GSA Summer Schools are for students 17 years and over. However, GSA offers a Youth Theatre for 12 – 16 year olds offering the chance to work with like-minded students on a given theme, and to produce your own piece of theatre.
