SO YOU WANT TO BE AN ACTOR

A week-long intensive for young people aged 13 – 18 years 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 are launching a week-long intensive that will be 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.

During the week young people will:

  • work with a director to prepare an audition piece

  • have photography sessions for your acting headshots

  • 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

  • prepare your CV and discuss showreels and social media do’s and don’ts

  • participate in round-table discussions with casting directors, drama schools and other industry professionals

We are so delighted to be able to offer this week-long industry intensive in person at our studio at Fairfield Halls, however due to continued social distancing and regulations surrounding the pandemic, numbers on the course will be strictly limited to 15 and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis (full details on our Covid policies can be found here).

 

If you apply and we haven’t got space, we will put you on a waiting list and let you know if a place becomes available.

 

A full timetable will be sent through once we have received your completed application and if you are unable to attend the week due to Covid, a full or partial refund will be offered for any fees paid (if applicable) and depending on whether any part of the week has been attended.
