If you are interested in Acting for Stage and Screen and would like to do something different this summer this workshop will provide fun exercises, an understanding of the acting process and the opportunity to develop your confidence and performing skills. Students will work with exciting improvisation and text using methods that have been carefully researched and developed to create actors comfortable both on stage and screen. Part of the work will be filmed so that students can see their progress. Julia is experienced in working with young people and was recently rated as “an outstanding teacher” by an OFSTED inspector while teaching at the Stagecoach Drama Centre.
