A number of short courses are on offer throughout the year at The Questors, which come under the umbrella of Platform. These are on a wide variety of drama and theatre related subjects, from stage management to Stephen Sondheim, and are run by specialised practitioners.
We are planning to include a course of taster sessions in backstage and technical skills. Plans for this course are being finalised, but it’s likely to include stage management, set and costume design, lighting, sound, set construction and scenic painting. It's perfect for anyone who would like to know more about what goes on backstage, especially if you’re interested in helping out on our productions.
Spaces are always limited due to the popularity of the sessions (and the incredibly competitive prices) so make sure you sign up promptly if a course is announced that whets your appetite!
Platform classes are run on Saturday evenings between 8.00–10.00pm.
Please note that anyone whose first language is not English will need to be sufficiently fluent in English to speak and understand during classes. Selection for Platform classes is at the discretion of the facilitator, but they are usually open to all and selection is based on a first come, first served basis.
All courses are available to those aged 18 and over. All classes will run subject to minimum numbers, so you are advised to return an application form as early as possible.
Watch this space for future Platform sessions!!
