Acting for All
Acting for All (AFA) will introduce you to the tools and methods that actors use in developing their characters.
In a series of weekly workshops, you'll be introduced to:
- The Tools of the Actor
- Movement and its Place in Theatre
- Scene Studies (taking scenes from productions and working them through)
- Voice and How to Use It
- Voice Acting for Audio Drama
All of these topics will be taught by specialists in their field and at the end of the course you'll have the opportunity to showcase your work to an invited audience.
How will I be taught and by whom?
will be done in groups, pairs and individually. Paul Whiting will be
your head tutor and he will be accompanied by a host of specialist mentors. Paul began his acting at QYT (Questors Youth Theatre) before
going onto the Questors Academy. 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.
What should I wear?
· Comfortable clothes you can move around in easily
What do I need to bring with me?
· Somewhere to store your notes
· A pencil and an eraser for script-marking
What can I do after this course?
AFA will enable you to go on and pursue a higher level of performance art or confidently try out for that part you've always wanted. Here at The Questors we offer a year long Foundation Course in Acting as well as other shorter courses under our Platform initiative. The sky is the limit.
