Spring term 2018 is led by Shelley Norton, Francois Pandolfo and Hannah McPake.
Various acting techniques are taught to create believable and compelling characters and performances. All abilities and backgrounds welcome and encouraged. For the last year the group have been working on acting techniques, monologues and scenes.  The time has come to move into performance mode. So this term we will be working with the group to create a piece of theatre.

Our aims are to teach techniques used in drama school and the Industry to build knowledge and confidence whatever your level of experience. Open to anyone willing to explore their potential and discover new things.
