Get a 20% early bird discount if you book by the 1st of August

Stage & the City’s acting classes are ideal if you want to boost your confidence, presentation skills or just want to have fun. Discover the buzz actors feel every time they go on stage, learn how to let yourself become other people and explore. During our courses, you will build up a tool-kit of performance skills enabling you to unlock character, help spontaneity and free your inner performer from inhibition. We strongly believe in the value acting classes for improving self-confidence and life skills, regardless of whether you want to pursue acting professionally.

The way that our Thursday evening classes have been structured is so that you can either choose to do the 6.30pm – 7.45pm course or the 8pm – 9.15pm. Alternatively, you may decide to do both sessions as they will both focus on different aspects. There is a 40% discount if you sign up for both sessions.

Our acting classes are designed to offer a progression through the levels of Beginners, Improvers to Intermediates. You will receive guidance and feedback from your acting coach throughout the course. Once you have attended our Acting for Beginners classes and feel ready to progress onto the next level, or if you have completed a similar acting course elsewhere, you may consider applying for our Acting for Improvers or Acting for Intermediates courses.
