Have you ever wanted to act? Or perhaps you are already a keen actor - amateur or professional - who's been missing the chance to tread the boards, to be part of a company, working together to create a piece of theatrical magic? Would you like to take part in a performance you can invite your friends and family to attend (for free!) and show them what you've been doing with your time and your talents? If so, we have just the short course for you!
In either five consecutive evenings (6.30pm-9.30pm each day) or two days (10am-5.30pm), we will guide you through the rehearsal process for our one-act play Persephone & the Pomegranate Seeds (a retelling of the classic Greek myth which we have been performing in various venues since May 2019), from beginning to end. All costumes and props will be provided, and the rehearsal process will include everything from the initial readthrough and working through the text together, to sessions focusing on character, a basic introduction to stage combat, a dress rehearsal, and a final production that you can invite your friends and family to!
We will be running these courses for the first time - though they have been in the pipeline for a while now - at the end of this month, during the week of half term, beginning on October 26th. If you are interested in finding out more and possibly signing up, please visit THIS PAGE on our website for further information and to book your spot.
Places are strictly limited, with a maximum of six students for each of the two courses, ensuring that everyone gets the most possible out of the experience. For these first runs we are also offering a one time only 25% discount off the standard price, so if you would like to book a place, please don't delay - we'd love to see you there!
Please note that social distancing will be observed - if you are attending together with someone from your household or support bubble, please let us know! - but we are confident that this will not interfere with your enjoyment of the course. All props etc will be rigorously sanitised, and students' temperatures taken before each rehearsal. In the event of the course having to be cancelled due to any change in government regulations, you will be offered a full refund. If you have any further questions or queries, don't hesitate to get in touch.
NOTE: We also have some places on each course available for free - or what you can afford - to those unable to pay the stated price. To apply for one of these bursaries, please fill out THIS FORM and we'll get back to you ASAP!
