About Acting Summer School for Ages 18+

This two-week in-person course will give you an insight into actor training by exploring the fundamentals of acting in a supportive environment. 

Collaborating with a blend of current Guildhall tutors and visiting industry professionals, you will take part in a series of craft-based masterclasses exploring movement, voice and a variety of acting techniques alongside intensive workshops exploring ways of creating work. Internal informal sharings of the work will be held throughout the two weeks.

Who is the course for?
  • Anyone with a passion for acting. The course is open to 18+ but there is no upper age limit.
  • No previous professional experience is needed, but a willingness and desire to share your work with your peers is a necessity in order to participate fully.

You can expect to cover topics including:

  • Voice
  • Movement
  • Audition technique
  • Screen technique
  • Contemporary text

Do I need anything for the course?
