Accredited by OCN London, the Access course is an exciting and rigorous training in the core disciplines of acting. Studying part time over a year, you will be taught by industry professionals on a range of modules that will develop your skills in voice, movement and character work. This course is perfect if you are intending to enter full time training at Drama School or if you want to build your craft as an actor and hone your developing skills.
Classes include the study of contemporary and classical texts, voice work, textual analysis and the exploration of the work of key acting practioners including Stanislavski and Laban. You will develop creatively through improvisation, physical theatre, devising, musical theatre, screen acting and audition technique. You will also have the opportunity to develop an innovative piece of theatre on a practical and independent project. In the final term, you will apply your skills in a public performance of a full scale production, with professional values, in the John Lyons Theatre.
