With two-week adult intensive courses, to one-week high-energy courses for children and young people, there really is something for everyone.
Adult performers can study Acting or Musical Theatre and as the dates do not clash, you could do both options. The two-week programmes for those aged 17+ provide intensive training, focus on techniques employed by the professional actor and used in full-time drama training. Courses are structured with skills based training in the mornings, followed by afternoon rehearsals with course directors working towards informal, end of course presentations. During the different skills based sessions, students work with a selection of invited professionals and practitioners in their specialist areas. Both of these courses also include a theatre trip.
If you are planning to audition for a full-time performance course then check out the Audition Technique programme, with Musical Theatre or Acting options. Working with experienced practitioners who know exactly what is required to make your mark, this course will increase your chances of success and guide you in the selection and preparation of suitable modern and classical texts and songs. Each option is geared towards its own specific discipline, culminating in a mock audition, with feedback and guidance.
