This hugely popular practical and engaging course aims to develop professional skills in acting, devising and theatre making. The course includes Units in: Acting; Acting for Camera; Voice; Movement; Creating Devised Theatre and Shakespeare. You will have the opportunity to perform a full-length text based production, with full technical support, for 3 nights at The Space, our own purpose built Theatre. Alongside this, you will participate in a unique devised ensemble piece, creating work in a collaborative and supportive environment.   

Additional opportunities through the year include: theatre trips and collaborative projects across the performing arts, as well as visits from industry professionals.
