Suit the action to the word, the word to the action…- (Hamlet Act 3 Sc ii) William Shakespeare (1564–1616) English poet, playwright and actor
As part of our extra-curricular provision we offer specialist lessons in Acting. At present we have a resident Teacher of Acting who works with students towards their LAMDA Acting and RADA Shakespeare Certificates examinations. Exams are scheduled twice a year: in November and May. Older students use these lessons to prepare for auditions for productions, scholarships and for entry into the National Youth Theatre and Drama Schools.
This aspect of the Drama Department is directed at helping to focus on the practical techniques required to act in the profession, and to this end the Department also regularly invites practitioners working in the theatre to offer special masterclasses and vocal accent coaching.
For further information please contact the Director of Drama, Gilly Norell.
