Entry Requirements

Applications are welcome from those aged 18+. Candidates will actively enjoy all aspects of practical drama work, be motivated, and enthusiastically embrace intensive rehearsal of world class writings.

This course is an exciting opportunity to experience intensive Acting training. You will enjoy the outstanding facilities and reputation of Rose Bruford College. It provides excellent preparation for students intending to apply to UK drama schools, further education colleges or universities, or wishing to build on prior experience. It is equally suited to those with some acting experience wishing to improve or extend their skills, and to those with limited experience who want to explore the work of an actor.

This intensive, two-week introductory programme develops your natural acting skills with classes in movement, voice and general acting as well as concentrating on audition technique, musical theatre and devising within an ensemble. Focusing on two plays – one classical and one contemporary – each week culminates in a performance in front of an invited audience.

• Designed to introduce you to the craft of acting in a conservatoire environment
• Confidence building for those with little previous experience
• Study a breadth of different techniques with industry professionals and guest teachers
• Set in the landscaped grounds of a stately home. The leafy atmosphere of the college inspires the imagination and enhances creativity.

Course content

You will receive an introduction to conservatoire level performance training that will cover:

Your voice is an important tool as an actor and its care and development is a life-long pursuit. You will investigate elements of the vocal progression characteristic of conservatoire and drama school voice training.

The focus of the movement work is on self-awareness, physical freedom and an understanding of the body as the physical instrument of the actor.

Acting classes will initially introduce basic principles through practical exercises that ask students initially to engage imaginatively and responsively without reference to a text.

You will be taught and directed by leading industry professionals and permanent members of Rose Bruford College’s faculty.
