Course Overview

Shakespeare is arguably one of the greatest geniuses that ever existed.

Our aim in this week long course is to make his work accessible to all. We will explore the vagaries and complexities of the language in order to expose the brilliant characters, fantastic stories and emotional realities that have made Shakespeare the worlds’ most celebrated playwright.

This course has proved to be immensely popular over the past few years and we have enjoyed gratifying feedback from our students.

For anyone over the age of 17 with an interest in acting, ranging from those thinking of applying for full time training or those who act ‘just for the fun of it’.

After all your hard work during the week, you are invited to a celebratory buffet, when you will also have the chance to chat and mingle with teaching staff who can provide further advice, help and information if required.

We look forward to another great year and can guarantee courses that are informative.

Our standards are professional and exacting. We encourage you to commit fully to the demands of the course and present and conduct yourself accordingly.

We will inform you which play you will be working on no later than one week prior to the commencement of the course.

Please be aware that rehearsals can sometimes overrun and continue longer than timetabled.

I find it immensely satisfying passing on the baton and continuing the culture of generosity of the many people who taught me. It’s a privilege and pleasure to nurture and teach so many talented young people and see them flourish in their career. Cathy Stewart, Head of Scenic Art
