Beginners Acting is a fun, gentle introduction to acting, improvisation and a little voice work. Nothing scary. You will learn basic principles of acting and the emphasis is on fun and getting out of your comfort zone. The group is usually comprised of a good mix of ages ranging from 20s up to 60s and everyone gets on like a house on fire! We usually go for a drink after the 3rd class and the last night of the course. If this seems like it is up your alley you can guarantee your place now.

Improvers Acting is a step up. As well as diving into our usual fun improvisations, each participant will bring a piece of text they wish to work on and we will spend six fun weeks bringing it to life. If you’ve done our beginners class or have some experience at acting, this is the class for you if you want to up your game. This class is ideal for actors who want to work on audition pieces.
