New Adult Acting Classes

Wednesday evenings, 7:45 - 9:15 at St Andrew's Church Hall in Caversham

New Adult Acting Classes on Wednesday evenings, 7:45 - 9:15 at St Andrew's Church Hall in Caversham. For adults who are keen to develop their performance skills and learn more about the theatre. No experience necessary, just a willingness to give things a go!
The emphasis in our class is practical exploration, working in groups in a supportive, relaxed environment to perform and experience key texts.
There are three ten-week terms, exploring different aspects of theatre development and playwriting, and various performance skills, styles and techniques. The course culminates in a showcase performance at the end of term three. While it is possible to participate on a term-by-term basis, it is recommended to complete the whole year.
Please see my website for further information.
