Should I or shouldn’t I? No, but can I or can’t I? Yes, but will I or won’t I? Arghh, I can’t decide!

As the famous quote goes: “It is the ability to choose which makes us human.” But what if the choice is one of the biggest decisions you’ve ever had to make? In this brand new 10-week acting course, probe the world of moral dilemmas with comedic and dramatic scenes: affairs, cheating, crimes, and more. So, what will you choose? This Acting for Improvers Ensemble Company is for those who have moved on from one of our Acting for Beginners courses, or a similar course / experience elsewhere, and are looking for something more challenging. Our acting classes are ideal if you would like to improve your acting skills, confidence and presentation skills. In the forthcoming term, you will have the opportunity and challenge to perform in a small showcase on the last day of term for invited friends and family. All profits from this showcase will go to the NHS.

Please e-mail hello@stageandthecity.com letting us know what acting courses you have been on in the past or any relevant acting experience you may have. We will then arrange a 15 minute zoom call with you in which you will have the opportunity to ask any questions and read through a short script.
