If you want to take the art of acting seriously, but don’t take yourself too seriously, then our intensely practical part-time course is for you.  Each week you’ll take specialised classes in Acting, Body Energy in Performance, and Voice and Speech.

Our hands-on course is aimed at those who want to make a commitment to becoming an actor – either to pursue a professional career, or to develop their skills in stage performance.

Unlike many other training providers we deliver our training in a working theatre which produces 15-20 professional-standard productions each year.

The course receives overwhelmingly positive feedback from students, and is recommended by tutors at many leading drama schools.

In the Autumn term, the classes in Body and Movement and in Voice and Speech continue, and the Acting classes apply the principles that you have learned in order to bring a script to life in performance.

In the Spring and Summer terms, work is geared to two full-length productions, one in March and one in July. These two productions are given full technical resources and feature in the season of plays at The Questors Theatre. The March production takes place in our Studio theatre and the July production in our Playhouse.
