This course is for those who are unable to, or would prefer not to, attend a course in person.*
Introduction to Acting for Stage and Screen is for anyone who wishes to explore the skills and techniques used by actors. Whilst aimed at beginners, this course may also be a useful refresher for those returning to acting after a long gap. It is suitable for anyone over 18, whether you’re a keen amateur or taking the first step to becoming a professional actor.
We welcome all who would like to explore, discover, learn, and most importantly have fun.
