Our Summer Season is a chance for our students to take part in a full length production.
2022 SUMMER SEASON
This year we will be presenting two plays for our Summer Season:
‘Daisy Pulls It Off’ by Denise Deegan directed by John McRoberts
‘Our Country’s Good’ by Timberlake Wertenbaker directed by Emma Bird
All performances will take place at The Hope Street Theatre 7th – 11th September
Once you sign up for the course you are guaranteed a speaking part in one of the plays (you must be willing to be in either play as the directors will decide on the casting once we have done the auditions).
There are only 32 places on the course, and these will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
The course costs £150. You pay a deposit when you register and make two more payments at the end of June and July.
Auditions will take place on Sunday 3rd July (it’s OK if you can’t make this date just let us know and we’ll organise something)
As mentioned above, once you book a place on the course you are guaranteed a speaking part in one of the plays, the casting will take place after the audition date. If you’re unable to make the audition date let us know and we will make alternative arrangements.
The auditions are pressure free. You will be given a scene to prepare in advance. You don’t need to learn the lines.
Rehearsals will start on W/C 11th July. They will then take place on evenings and weekends and will be scheduled around your availability (to the best of our ability). You can choose whether you would like to rehearse:
– Once a fortnight,
– Once a week,
– More than once a week.
*It is still possible to go on holiday and be involved in the production.
Availability will inform our casting process.

Our Core Acting Pathway
Our Core Acting Pathway is made up of four courses, Acting for Beginners, Script Analysis, Finding the Truth and Advanced Acting / Theatre Company. If after taking Beginners, you decide you would like to develop your acting skills and technique further, you can follow this core pathway.

Alongside our Core Acting Pathway, we also offer a range of other acting courses. These courses can be taken alongside or after completing our Core Acting Pathway. You should have taken Beginners or have some previous experience before taking one of these courses.
