TOWARDS ACTING SCHOOL
Towards Acting School
Acting and Theatre Practice for 17+
The Towards Acting School Sunday course has been especially designed for those auditioning for any drama school, or other performance projects, as well as those just seeking to make a more honest contact with audience and text.
Drawing on the training
traditions of this internationally renowned drama school, East 15’s work with
school-age students had already established a reputation, with pupils
and parents alike, for delivering a sound grounding in theatre practices and in
the development of character and confidence.
This programme, for 17+ students, has been developed to meet increasing demand for a more advanced and challenging course. Drawing on input from current tutors at East 15, the course looks at audition speeches, voice work and singing, approaches to both classical and contemporary texts and issues such as the psychology of an audition or dealing with stage nerves.
The course is led by Jessica Harris. Jessica has enjoyed a professional career spanning almost twenty years on stage and screen.
Theatre work has included roles at the Bush Theatre, Liverpool Everyman Theatre, National Theatre, Theatre Royal York and the West Yorkshire Playhouse as well as the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Television credits include; Being Human, The Bill, Casualty, Cold Feet, Doctors, Fat Friends, Holby, Linda Green, Peak Practice The Starlings, Thieves Are Us and Wire in the Blood.
East 15 played a very active role in the Conference of Drama Schools and now contributes to the debate among the leading drama schools in the UK though its membership of the newly formed Drama UK. This helps inform tutors of the wider demands of schools beyond just East 15 in their approach to auditions. The course is conducted in a way that will give a taste of both drama school training and the professional world and participants will be expected to approach the work in an appropriately professional manner.
Courses run from 10.00am to 3.30pm every Sunday. Although the Autumn 2013 nine week course has SOLD OUT enquires are welcomed for a new course in the Spring term - commencing January 26th. The course fee is £200.
