It’s been a very busy few months and we have lots of exciting things coming up!

Check out our new courses below starting this Autumn term, and our shows in December!


Acting Step One – 10 weeks

When: Every Wednesday from 11th January (6.45pm-9.45pm)

Book yourself on to the next Acting Step One course through Scaffold State Training Company (formerly Intro to acting), led by Gareth Kennerley with visiting teachers (all working professionals) each week.

You will have ongoing work on a 1-1 basis on performing dramatic monologues alongside the visiting sessions. You will share your monologues with an invited audience on the last session.

This course is great for all levels of experience and opens doors to continue on to public performances with the company.

Try something new in 2017. Book here.

There are a maximum of 16 places available on this course.

Shakespeare Introduction Course – 4 weeks

When: Saturdays (1pm to 7pm) starting November 19th until December 10th

Our production of Much Ado About Nothing last month was a resounding success! Another Shakespeare production will start rehearsal in January, and only those who have successfully completed the Shakespeare intro course will be able to join the cast.

Speech into song – 8 weeks

When: Tuesdays, starting from 22nd November, 7pm.

How do we move from speech into song? What is the bridge between acting and singing? How can we build drama into vocal performance.

Students at all levels of experience accepted. Each session is 2.5 hrs with a break over Christmas for learning and a final showcase in the new year.



Faith, hope and charity, by Odon Von Horvath

When: 6th, 7th, 8th December (7.30pm)

This brilliant and punchy piece of German expressionism is humourous, absurd, dark and quirky. Follow Elizabeth’s journey through a surreal, yet all too recognisable world as she she struggles against the system in order to prove her independence. All she needs is a sales permit, and she’ll do anything to get it. But the system sometimes is just too strong.
Germination, a devised piece

When: 13th and 14th December (8.00pm)

This piece was inspired by the details surrounding the 1999 London nailbombings.

Our story concentrates on the decisions, moments, connections, consequences and relationships that are brought to the fore when events that are out of our control effect us.
