ACT Two Week Workshop


Our Two Week Intensive Acting Workshop runs each month and is designed to introduce students to the basic principles and activities involved in an Actor Training. It is suitable for absolute beginners as well as those students wishing to build upon previous performance experience.

The workshop runs from Monday to Thursday evening, 7pm - 10pm for 2 consecutive weeks and incorporates 16 x 1.5 hour classes in Voice, Movement, Acting Technique, Improvising & Devising and Working with Text. The workshop costs £150 in total.

We will give you a detailed timetable prior to the start of the course.

Entry requirements

Applicants must be over 18 years old. We will accept applications from students 16-18 with written parental approval. Previous drama experience is not necessary and there is no upper age limit.

Applications from speakers of English as a second language are welcome but please note that all of ACT's courses are taught in English and are practical and active. We recommend an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) overall band of 6.0 or if below this extensive previous drama or theatre experience.

“All the teachers were great. I really liked how each session seemed to build on the last. I really felt that at the end of the Workshop I had improved and my attitude to acting developed. ”

— K Ford

Feedback and further training

Upon completion of the Workshop, each tutor submits a written evaluation of every student's potential in their discipline and students may then attend an individual feedback session and interview with the Principal or Head of Acting.

Candidates for places on the Diploma and Foundation courses are usually required to complete the Workshop in order that we can determine their suitability for further training.
