COMPANY b Theatre is for those who wish to develop acting skills to a higher level. It is particularly suitable for those considering professional training or developing their own work.

During the 2018-19 academic year we develop participants acting skills and apply them to a mix of performance opportunities over the year.

In particular for this year we will look at physical theatre, mask, clown, farce, improvisation and satirical comedy.  We will form a theatre company and start to make work for street performance and theatre that entertains, challenges and subverts (inspired by Improv Everywhere, Dario Fo, Augusto Boal, Sue Morrison, John Wright and more). These may take place around the city and beyond in a variety of places, expect to get out and about and cause a stir!

At the end of the year we will produce a full length comic play on themes of poverty, property and protest. This will be performed in a few different places as a small summer tour. 

The year is perfect for anyone looking to develop their skills as a performer, take part in a number of performances and be deeply involved in the process of making theatre. It can be a great companion to your study at school, college or university, professional style training if you are starting out or a brilliant way to refine your skills as you start your career. 

Ideal for young people studying GSCE, A Level or Higher Education Theatre. Many of the young people we work with go on to train at some of the best Theatre Schools and Universities in the country.

£87 per term | £260 per year (equates to £8.70 per session)

The classes are split into three 10 week long terms (that mirror academic terms):

  • Term 1: September to December
  • Term 2: January to March/April (depending on when Easter falls)
  • Term 3: April to July

No experience is needed!
