Enjoy the thrill of acting -
improve your confidence -

& make new friends!

- 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.

This course is suitable for complete beginners or those returning to acting after a long break who would like to brush up their skills.  Participants will gain most from the course when they are able to do a certain amount of preparation in between sessions.
