Training to become an actor is an intensive process which requires curiosity, courage and commitment. At Guildford School of Acting, we’ll help you develop your imagination, range, skills and technique. You’ll learn how to prepare for rehearsal, how to rehearse and how to use independent and proactive processes to achieve your best work possible for stage and screen.
What you will study
Drawing on the teaching and practices of Stanislavsky and Lecoq, our BA Acting course will develop your technical skills – from singing to stage combat. You’ll learn important critical and evaluative skills, and develop your imagination through play, improvisation and scene work. You’ll also take screen acting classes and complete film and radio projects that allow you to explore the processes needed in today’s recorded media.
You’ll attend classes and workshops with guest speakers to develop your professional network and employment opportunities. As you come to the end of your course, you’ll complete your transition to professional performer with a final showcase presentation in a West End theatre with invited agents and industry guests.
