City Campus Manchester
(Evening Only - 20 weeks)
Have you ever fancied learning about acting? Do you want to develop your skills and your confidence? Then this course, which starts in January and ends in June, could be the one for you. This is a largely practical course running over one evening a week working on your performance skills. You'll learn how to tackle a script, how to create your own work and how to develop your practical skills of voice and physicality.
A mixture of coursework and practical assessment is used and all written assessments are linked to practical work. You may be asked to research directors, playwrights, practitioners or an era in history, to underpin your practical performance. You may be asked to write a log or diary of your acting process.
• You will take part in a practical audition and interview to initially assess your practical skills
• You must be able to learn lines
• Prior practical experience would be useful but not essential
All assessments are internal and are made up of both theoretical / written coursework tasks and also practical performances or demonstrations of your practical skills.
