Our next round of six week courses will start in autumn. Over the summer we will host a series of one day workshops. JUST ANNOUNCED: May Workshops
Beginners’ Drama Workshop
Have you ever wanted to try your hand at acting? Or maybe you’d like to meet new people in a fun, informal setting? If so, then this class is for you. Explore performance through a variety of fun, low pressure games and exercises. We will cover improvisation, character building, and a little bit of script work. Emphasis is on enjoyment and confidence building. All ages (18+) welcome. Catering for total beginners.
Screen Acting Workshop
Learn how to be relaxed and natural on camera. Work on scripts from famous movies. Our playback facilities allow students to watch and learn from their performances. Suitable for complete beginners, those with a bit more experience or even theatre actors who wish to hone their screen acting skills.
Comedy for Beginners Workshop
Learn how to relax and be funny! Work on comedy drama exercises to bring out your natural comedian. Work on your comic timing. Try your hand at basic clowning and work on group scenes from classic comedies like Fawlty Towers and Noises Off. A fun and friendly approach to comic acting. Catering for complete beginners.
Long Form Improvisation Workshop
Long Form Improv focuses on creating full improvised plays, often inspired by a single word or idea. In this three hour workshop we will work on Long Form Impro games and exercises and explore different Long Form structures like The Armando and The Dream. This is a workshop for students who have already had a little impro experience ( but maybe a long time ago ), or who have already taken part in Beginners’ Impro with Oxon Drama.
Improvisation for Beginners
Tuesday 30th May-Tuesday 27th June 7pm-9pm £85
Have you always wanted to try Improv but been too scared? Or maybe you’d like to learn to be more spontaneous, more decisive and better at listening? If so, this improvisational theatre class is for you. Improv is great for anyone who is interested in discovering a new way of experiencing the world around them. In this class, you will learn the rules of improvisational theatre, create bold narrative and character choices, and explore spontaneous honest choices. You’ll develop your listening and perceiving skills as well as build confidence for large theatrical choices. No prior improv, drama or performing experience needed but an openness to learn and try something new is vital. All ages (18+) welcome. Catering for total beginners. All ages (18+) welcome.
