Advanced Acting Course

Looking to become a professional actor? Are you already trained or experienced and would like to keep your skills sharp and your network strong? 

Advanced Acting Course

A bespoke course of around 12 students. The Advanced Acting Course is designed to train at a high level in acting and performing during one evening per week, plus homework and showcase performances to agents.

Work with leading directors and acting coaches such as John Mitchell (former associate director of the Traverse Theatre) Clare Cairns (Founder and Director of Acting Out), Marion Geoffray (Film and TV Director) and in the past Philippos Philippous (award winning writer and director from the National Theatre of Greece).  

Terms vary depending on the expert coach, the director, the class and the objective set for each term. In the past students have covered Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov, Adler, Hagen, Strasberg, Meisner, Mamet and many different Theatre Art Forms. 

As each term is different students enrol term after term, making places very competitive. 

Acting Out wishes to enrol the most able and qualified students for this course. All students should meet the demands of the course and achieve the necessary standard required.

Acting Out rekindled my enjoyment of acting which I had put aside for almost 20 years. I loved the thrill each week from the improv games, and the satisfaction of creating a character or scene out of nothing, with a great bunch of people. Having re-established my confidence I am now branching out into a number of unexpected acting directions. 48 Hour Film is the first bit of acting I’ve done since Acting Out. We won 6 prizes including Best Film, so next March I’ll be flown out to Hollywood for the international finals at a film festival called Filmapalooza!
