Coming Soon...

Due to the current situation our part time training offer is suspended, we hope to continue Our Sunday training hub at The Barbican Theatre in part over the Summer. In the meantime here are some thoughts of what we have planned...

Our part time training programmes, workshops and CPD opportunities are currently on pause due to the current crisis. However we have some exciting plans for the future and would love to hear your thoughts...

Our training offer is designed to offer continued training opportunities for professional performers and emerging artists as well as to develop those at the early stages of their career, either currently in study and training or looking to apply to Drama schools in the near future. All workshops and courses are designed to progress individuals at their current level and will be structured accordingly to ensure you gain the most from the course. 

Summer Plans: 

Screen Acting

Industry, Self Tape and Audition Technique

Great Plays: Antigone
(2 day weekend Intensive)

Autumn Plans:

One Year Part Time - 'Earn While You Train'...

We are looking to launch a one year part time actor training course offering students a chance to hold down work whilst they study. The course would run under 'The Wheel Actor Training Company'

with students becoming company members, training with us for a year and ending the year performing in a fully directed production. 

We are still in the planning stages, but will ensure the fees are as low as possible to make the training affordable, and anticipate the contact hours being approx 9 hours commitment a week, over a weekend day and one weekday evening. 

We think this is will be great way for people to get a very real taste of what actor training is for one year, and could provide a great experience either as a stand alone course, a preparation for those heading into full time training ensuring they are fully aware of what they are signing up for at drama schools, a good one year post graduate experience for those finishing a degree in other another subject or for those coming into training from a career change. 


We are currently taking expressions of interest to see if there is an demand an appetite for this kind of training. If there is enough interest we will look to launch the programme as early as October this year. 

If this potentially sounds of interest to you we would love to hear from you! please email info@thewheel.org.uk for more info or just to say you would be interested to find out more.

Past courses have included:

Physical Theatre, Acting With Text, Audition Technique,

Acting Fundamentals, Text exploration in our 'Great Plays' Series, Stage Combat, Shakespeare and Singing Masterclasses.

Get In Touch...
