Absolutely fantastic workshop which gives you a snippet into the world of an  actor and the acting industry.  Brilliant teaching from the Director, Clare, who  delivers  an intensive, professional acting workshop, which pushes you to another level.   Be prepared to receive feedback to improve your acting skills.    I recommend the taster course and definitely will book a part time course.   Yvonne J

It was serious and I learnt a lot in one session.  My favourite exercise was the TV script.  Fascinating.

Amazing that you can get this on Groupon.  Like spending the day at a drama school. Really good. Neena  (22)


Brilliant teacher.  I’ve gone to tasters before.  They weren’t a patch on this.  Seriously good.
