About Acting Intensive for Ages 18+: Online

This one-week online acting course will give you an insight into actor training by exploring the fundamentals of acting in a supportive environment. Working with a range of tutors, this will be an opportunity for you to try out, stretch or flex your acting muscles. You will take part in a series of stand-alone, craft-based masterclasses and rehearsals. 

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.
What can I expect?

The course has a strong practical focus — learning by doing. You can expect to cover topics including:

  • Acting technique
  • Voice
  • Audition technique
  • Acting online
  • Contemporary text
  • Scene study

Each group (maximum 14) will be led by a dedicated director. 

An online meet and greet session (one hour) will be organised a week before the start of the course as an opportunity for you to meet with the course tutors and course leader.

Do I need anything for the course?
  • A quiet, private space to work from in order to gain the most from the course.
  • The ability to print off materials or a second device to work from.
  • A good microphone and decent lighting (e.g. ring light) would be beneficial.
  • A set text may need to be purchased (details to be confirmed).
“What I enjoyed most about the course was the range of tutors we had. I loved that we heard from many different voices about their experience [...] I also enjoyed the encouragement we received throughout the course from all tutors, which helped in making us feel welcomed and most importantly comfortable. ”

– Rachael, Acting Intensive for ages 18+: Online 2021
