What do the sessions involve?

Each weekly session involves a mixture of drama games, role play, improvisation and script work. Working towards performances whether that be in theatre, radio or film. We cover all types of acting from Shakespeare to comedy to modern helping members to understand characters' motivation and feelings.

As children progress through the workshop they are given the opportunity to devise and write their own plays, films and monologues/duologues and also to direct.

We also have guest tutors who come in to run workshops on more specialised areas e.g Stagefighting.

What makes you different?

We are not a franchise. We are professionals who work within the industry. We offer specialist training in radio, theatre & film. Projects & performances vary greatly, giving members the opportunity to take part in some really diverse and exciting projects. Due to our contacts within the industry there are opportunities for professional castings.
