What is Acting for All?

Acting for All is a one-year part-time course taking place on Friday evenings between 8 and 10pm. It is an introductory acting course suitable for complete beginners.

Showcase performance

Towards the end of the course, you will have the chance to show the work you’ve done over the year in front of an invited audience in the Studio theatre at The Questors.

He then studied at Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance, and today works professionally. He is a founding member of the sketch-comedy companies The Errors of Comedy and Interference
