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 launched a 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.

During the week young people:

  • worked with a director to prepare an audition pieces

  • had their acting headshots done and prepared their CV's

  • met with casting directors, agents and drama school staff

  • attended workshops in voice, movement and different performance styles including mask and stage combat

  • created a short performance and took part in a final sharing of work

Our inaugural So You Want To Be An Actor event took place during the May 2021 half-term and was a huge success. Our next event will be early 2022, so keep an eye on our website and social media for details on how to sign up.
