Short courses: lasting impact - Acting and Theatre Production

Last spring and summer we welcomed 500 students onto our Short Courses aged between 16-70 from over 30 countries - to give them a taste of our training.

From the feedback we gain and the relationships we build with our attendees, we know that our Short Courses have a lasting impact on people’s lives - and many people return to us each year.
