Building Confidence Through Drama

*FREE* – Building Confidence Through Drama


It’s never too late to try something new!

A FREE, charity funded drama workshop aimed at anyone 18+ looking to build their confidence in every day life. If you’re looking to work professionally in theatre, this isn’t the course for you. However, if you get nervous meeting new people, stumble over your words, get sweaty hands and dry mouth giving presentations at work and could benefit from a real confidence boost to get over those ‘stage fright’ situations, this fun and completely FREE course is the one for you! The course is funded by volunteering charity vInspired.

This course is not intended for Jobbing Actors – NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

During the workshops you will work on acting techniques which you can practice at home to help improve your day-to-day life – real acting techniques used by Actors to improve concentration, assertiveness, improvisation, visualisation, using your voice, positivity and you’ll look at techniques derived from practitioners such as Meisner and Stanislavski. There will be minimal script work in these sessions. Every session is standalone and all that is asked is that you email each week to confirm your attendance the following Sunday.

This course is NOT a New Live Theatre project, but is being managed by our Artistic Director Paul Kenney, Karl Barnsley (Artistic Director of The Lion Tamers Theatre Company) and Alex Shepley (Artistic Director of Receptive Theatre Company). Building Confidence Through Drama is fully funded by volunteering charity vInspired.

The course is strictly for those aged 18-99 – we do not permit alcohol during the sessions and tea, coffee and soft drinks are provided. If you are interested in joining the workshops or know someone who the course may benefit (in which case please send them this link) please email ASAP with your name, a contact number and a line or two about why you think a confidence boosting course could help you. Take control, there’s no time like the present! Seize the day.
