When Covid-19 first sent us into lockdown, we adapted our courses and classes and moved online because…the show must ALWAYS go on!
Our Online Programme included five-day workshops for children, three-day workshops for teenagers, and four-day courses for adults.
These classes were run over Zoom and included an element of working as a group, working alone and receiving individual, personalised tuition. They all culminated in a different type of filmed performance which was uploaded to The Dramatis Online Stage (a YouTube account) so participants could share with family and friends or use for future auditions.
Whilst our Autumn/Winter 2020 programme sees us return to in-person classes, our experience running Zoom sessions means we can quickly return an online format if required.
However, due to the success of our online play-reading group, Wine and Wilde, we have decided to keep this running in the virtual space. This is the perfect option for adults who are completely new to acting, nervous about committing to a course or an in-person class. Several of our Wine and Wilde attendees have gone on to sign up for one of the Adult Short Courses afterwards.
