ACT

We nurture versatile, confident and individual young actors.
Acting is at the core of everything we do at Stagewise and we recognise that strong acting skills are also essential for musical theatre.

Stagewise acting workshops provide a firm foundation for those students who aspire to go on to further training at drama school and to pursue a professional career.

Workshops are carefully structured to give each student the opportunity to explore and develop a wide variety of skills including: improvisation, sight reading, script work, comedy, mask work, characterisation, Laban, voice work, radio, Shakespeare, devising, stage combat, physical theatre and acting for film and television.

We help you to develop your acting skills to their full potential by drawing on a variety of acting techniques including Stanislavsky, Hagen, Meisner and Kogan. We encourage actors to stay curious and playful, to use their imagination and never to be afraid to make mistakes.

Students work together as an acting company and gain valuable ensemble skills whilst learning to recognise and develop their individual talent and to practice a generous and professional work ethic.

Audition preparation and practice is integral to our acting training and students are encouraged to build a repertoire of contemporary and classical audition monologues. Students can work towards acting, singing and musical theatre exams with LAMDA, Trinity and RADA. We are ambitious for all our students and have a 100% pass rate at merit and distinction.

We have regular masterclasses with Industry guest creatives from the West End, Film, Theatre and Television.
