The ACT Workshop


We are now running the Workshop again. The majority of classes are in person but we are keeping a few sessions online to remain Covid safe.

We are limiting the number of participants on each workshop to maintain social distancing and face masks/coverings must be worn whilst in the schools public spaces and for some exercises in class.

We recommend that you book early as places are limited

Please note: we are now accepting applications for Diploma & Foundation for September 2021 via Zoom Auditions - please see our COVID-19 COURSES UPDATE.

The Two Week Workshop

Our Two Week Intensive Acting Workshop runs each month and is designed to introduce students to the basic principles and activities involved in an Actor Training. It is suitable for absolute beginners as well as those students wishing to build upon previous performance experience.

The workshop runs from Tuesday to Friday evening, from 7pm - 10pm for 2 consecutive weeks and incorporates 16 x 1.5 hour classes in Voice, Movement, Acting Technique, Improvising & Devising and Working with Text. The workshop costs £150 in total.

Please Note: The September Workshop will run Monday to Thursday, from 7pm.

The workshop takes place at ACT Brighton & ACT Hove. We will give you a detailed timetable prior to the start of the course.

Entry Requirements

Applicants must be over 18 years old. We will accept applications from students 16-18 with written parental approval. Previous drama experience is not necessary and there is no upper age limit.

Applications from speakers of English as a second language are welcome but please note that all of ACT's courses are taught in English and are practical and active. We recommend an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) overall band of 6.0 or if below this extensive previous drama or theatre experience.

Feedback and Further Training

Upon completion of the Workshop, each tutor submits a written evaluation of every student's potential in their discipline and students may then attend an individual feedback session and interview with the Principal. .

Candidates for places on the Diploma and Foundation courses are usually required to complete the Workshop in order that we can determine their suitability for further training.
