Acting Workshop

Weekly drop-in Acting workshops for 13-18 age group

Each week’s workshop is designed as a stand alone session led by Chickenshed’s Head of Acting.

Workshops will look at the basic fundamentals of actor training including voice, character, improvisation technique and scene and text work (classical and contemporary).

Workshops Include:

  • Acting techniques, theories and exercises exploring character
  • Text work - approaches to working with modern and classical texts
  • Voice - breath support, articulation, clarity
  • Mask work
  • Devising and improvisation
  • Monologues and soliloquies
  • Q&As and discussions with guest theatre practitioners

The workshops are suitable for young people, whatever their existing skill set, and are taught in a way that aims to encourage self-discipline and creative risk-taking.

Simply turn up, join in, have fun and start exploring theatre.
