Get Into Acting

Have you ever dreamt of becoming an actor? If so, our Get Into Acting course is perfect for those who are both inquisitive and serious about a future career in acting.

This course is for anyone who is interested in becoming an actor. The course acts as a taster of drama school training, a broad and basic introduction to the craft of acting and acting as a profession.

Get Into Acting is aimed at those currently outside the industry. It course runs regularly throughout the year - each course lasting a month, running over 4 weekends. Content includes key elements of actor training including voice, movement, character, scene and text work (classical and contemporary), improvisation and audition technique. The course is taught in a way that aims to replicate closely the professional rehearsal room and the self-discipline, creative risk-taking and professional work ethic involved in being a professional actor. All workshops will be taught by tutors from the Actors Centre's regular programme for professional actors.
