Previous Courses:

It Takes Two; an acting for radio course (Winter/Spring 2020)
During this 12 week course, pupils learnt how to act for radio. They learnt how the voice works, how to build a character and read and recorded two-hander scenes. By the end of the course, they had their very own CD and downloadable copy to play back to family and friends.

Putting on the Skits (Autumn/Winter 2019)
Over this 10 week low pressure drama course, students worked on creating their own comedy skit or scene. They learnt the art of comic timing and played around with various comic scenes; from Little Britain to The Two Ronnies. The course finished with a performance of a rehearsed reading to a local residential home.

Making a Radio Play (Summer 2019)
During this 10 week acting course, attendees learnt how to put on a radio play. Working in partnership with Radio Respect, this course explored the basics of radio acting, voice work, script interpretation and character building. The course culminated in a show which was broadcast on internet radio. There was no need to learn lines, no pressure of a stage and attendees got their own downloadable copy of the radio play to keep.
