Seeing so much theatre helped improve my own style of acting.

The Summer School core classes are:

  • Acting from a methodological approach
  • Physical studies
  • Vocal studies
  • Improvisation and mask work
  • Stage Combat
  • Music and coral singing
  • Shakespeare
  • Contemporary devising
