Starting 01 March 2020
14-17 age group
We are running theatre training courses in Lyme Regis, Dorset bringing drama, speech and stage skills to secondary school pupils.
These are fun, practical based sessions exploring all aspects of theatre including Shakespeare, voice training, mask work, comedy, rehearsal process and warm-up tools used by professional actors when working on intensive stage productions.
If you are a school or theatre and would like to book a half day, full day or 1 week course then please contact us for more information on possible dates in your area. We also offer a 45 minute scripted play for actors to perform as part of the training program.
Our ongoing project whereby the participant becomes both audience member and actor is now a recognised training method. This is Theatre Now®.
The actors decide what will happen, why and how, as what is taking place is totally unscripted. A central character is placed on stage and in turn, or even as a small group, the observing actors adopt roles and interact within improvised scenes.
The centre stage individual then responds to what is happening by acknowledging the approaching participants who, as soon as reaching the stage become part of the production.
The interacting actors have the freedom to come and go as they please but the central character must always remain on stage. It's a marathon in concentration and story telling.
Please get in touch about our summer courses starting May 2020. The Youth Theatre is a new venture for us!
Why is The Fever a play, and not an essay or a poem or a polemic? It doesn't clearly present how things are or even how they should be; it documents a process, an exchange between "characters" who have strong reasons for their incompatible demands.
An Actor's Exploration, which focuses on casting, text exploration, acting for theatre, audition technique, improvisation, movement and characterisation. A production already in progress can be included to further the creative process.
