Participants will work on monologues and scenes, with a focus on one of the set sonnets and scenes from the Shakespeare Awards syllabus; there will be classes in singing; dance; movement; and voice with dedicated members of the RADA faculty; led by the internationally-renowned RADA Tutor and Director, Tim Hardy.
The course is limited to 10 persons in order to maximise the personal development of the individual.
Participants will be asked to prepare and memorise a short Shakespearean monologue of their own choosing.
Please remember that this is a strenuous course and that while any specific needs will be taken fully into account, participants must be reasonably fit. There is no upper age limit, however applications are advised that the course is physically demanding. Fluent confident knowledge of the English language is essential.
Applicants are not asked to audition, but each applicant needs to give some information concerning their experience (or otherwise) of acting: and then write a short note saying what they want from the course. Applications by students between the ages of 16 and 18 may need additional references and will be given special consideration by the Course Director.
