Learn To Act

Classes, which I have been running since 1994, take place on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. You may start at any time, and you don't have to enrol in advance or commit yourself to a high cost before you begin. This is because there is a rolling programme of ten weekly topics which may be joined at any point and which you can take at your own pace. Some of the people who come are beginners, others are experienced actors. In general there are parallel strands for people who are seeking an introduction to acting, or a foundation course, or continuation of their existing training and experience. The Thursday class is more oriented towards less experienced pupils but I am happy for people to cross over from one day to the other, or attend both.

Topics covered include improvisation, voice exercises, developing a character, sight reading, approaching the classics, working on audition pieces, acting for the screen, auditioning successfully and entering the business professionally.

People who have no aim of becoming professional actors but want to develop their self confidence or express themselves in an enjoyable way are also welcome. If you are new to acting and feel nervous you will find that our members are friendly and that everything you are given to do at first is simple.

Every session is different because there is new material every time. I have long specialised in making acting accessible to all. We usually have a drink together afterwards so it's very sociable and a good way of meeting people and making contacts, and new projects and productions frequently spin off from the group. A certificate is available for all those who complete a ten week course.

Please contact me for further details or for more information about my 1-1 work (audition preparation, public speaking and voice work).

For times and venues please see here for details.

Fees: £12 per session, £84 for 10. Please call to ask about concessions.
