So You Want to Be an Actor

A half-term intensive for teenagers who are interested in pursuing a career in acting.

Over the years, SAVVY has brought leading industry professionals into our rehearsals to work with our weekly youth drama groups and provide training in all aspects of performance. And yet, the question we are most asked by the young people we work with at SAVVY is 'how to I become an actor'?

So in response we launched our biennial week-long intensive to discover all about the practical side of the industry. The nuts & bolts. The reality vs the perception of what pursuing a career in acting is all about.

The half-term intensive takes place  every two years  during the May half-term, from  10am - 4pm  at our SAVVY Studio, Fairfield Halls in Croydon.

During the programme participants will:

  • work with a professional director to prepare an audition piece

  • have your acting headshots done and learn how to prepare a CV

  • undertake workshops in voice, movement and different performance styles

  • create a short performance and take part in a final sharing of work

  • understand the different working environments of film, tv & theatre

  • discuss showreels, self-taping and social media do’s and don’ts


How much does it cost?

The intensive costs £150 which is due before the first day, and can be paid in two instalments.  

PLEASE NOTE: We do not want financial pressures to stop anyone from attending and want to remove any stigma or guilt attached to not being able to pay fees.  SAVVY can offer financial assistance for anyone wanting to take part.
