TRAINING OBJECTIVES - develop through performance!
At Actors Training Studio we believe that nothing progresses an actor more thoroughly than live performance. Whether you are a complete beginner or have some experience, the challenge of bringing your work to life in front of even a tiny audience while learning to cope with performance nerves, develops performance skills and builds self-confidence like nothing else.
PERFORMANCE followed by END OF TERM SOCIAL!
INTRODUCTION TO ACTING
An introduction to the basic principles of acting, using drama games, technical exercises, devised scenes, improvisation on text
and rehearsal of scenes from plays.
The final session will be an informal presentation
of work-in-progress for family and friends.
Each participant will perform a monologue and
a duologue scene from a famous play, read a poem and/or piece of prose and present a short piece
of public speaking.
This course is suitable for complete beginners or those returning to acting after a long break who would like to brush up their skills
