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.


The majority of our 'in person' courses are still on pause - with the exception of the One Year Part Time Actor Training Company -  due to COVD-19. 

We are currently running a number of online courses initiatives to support actors across the UK.

Coming Soon...

We are planning to launch more 'In Person' workshops and courses in the spring season when we have a clearer understanding of what is possible. Here are some thoughts of what we have planned...

Any one considering entering full time acting and theatre courses at Drama School or University, or those interested in improving their audition technique.

Amanda Collins & Kevin Johnson (see the Creative Team page for bios)


One two hour online session with a small group (max 8), introducing the area, and then breaking into two smaller groups to do some introductory work on your pieces.

Followed by two one hour solo coaching sessions working on each monologue with a different director/acting coach

(option to book further discounted solo tuition after if desired)






There will be multiple courses to keep cohorts small.. Running from October 2020 through until March 2021. The first group sessions will run on either a Thursday evening 7pm-9pm, or a Saturday either 10am-12pm or 2pm-4pm.

The 2 solo sessions can be scheduled afterwards through an opt in system from session times we have available, that fit around your availability.
