Do you do any showcases or productions?

We usually present work once or twice a year – towards the end of the year we have an informal presentation to family and friends and there is a public performance once a year. The focus of the classes really is on learning new skills and having a go at things that you might not have experienced before or feel you need more experience of whilst also rehearsing towards a performance. The classes are taught from the angle of what might be expected of professional actors, although professional standards are NOT expected of those taking part and the sessions are open to anyone.

How old are people in the classes?

16 – 116! – although most people are generally between 18 and 65. There is usually a real mix.

Do I need any experience to join the classes?

Not usually. We cater for complete beginners and those who are keen to exercise their acting muscles. Everyone can learn from each other and what better way of learning than taking part!
