BOVTS Workshop Easter Course


Over four fun-fuelled days participants will use theatre games and exercises to create their own characters, invent their own stories and stage their own scenes!


With the help of their professional director they will use their powers of imagination to write an original play, which will be performed as a work in progress for friends and family at the end of the week.


Past stories have been set in a post apocalyptic war zone, on a pirate ship, and within an enchanted forest. Where will this week’s adventure lead…?


This course is suitable for ages 7-11 of all abilities and levels of experience. Max capacity 20 students.


Sessions are led by professional DBS-cleared actors and directors and are tailored to the age and ability of each group.

Bursaries are available

The school has some full and partial bursaries which are available to support young people from Bristol to participate in its youth groups and short courses.

Although all applications for bursary places will be considered, priority will be given to individuals experiencing financial hardship (evidence may be required), disabled applicants and applicants from  BAME communities, rural areas, inner city areas and other underrepresented groups.

Funding will be allocated on a case by case basis.

Please apply as normal and state when returning your application that you would like to apply for a bursary place. 

I’m constantly delighted by the talent, commitment and drive of our students. Their curiosity and joy in the work gives us all energy and keeps me on my toes! My goal is to ensure that their voices serve their acting - both in theatre and recorded media. They need to be able to project, learn accents, respond to a wide variety of texts and have a voice that is healthy and be able to sustain long tours and tough filming schedules. This involves them working extremely hard – but having fun as well. When the new students see the final year students in production for the first time I know they’ll come into class the next day fully understanding the high standard they’re working to achieve.
