If you are looking for a chance to put your acting skills into practice, learning to create exciting characters through improvisation, voice work and simply playing, then our Assemble Theatre Company is for you. During this acting course, you will work with a professional director, rehearsing weekly towards a theatre performance for an audience.
The Assemble Theatre Company is a performance led theatre training company looking at the principles of Stanislavski, Uta Hagen and Laban as a basis of learning.
The first quarter of the term is used to refine a basic understanding of acting craft and how to apply it for truthful and accurate performances. The remaining weeks are focused on developing a script for a theatre production. This includes detailed rehearsals, improvisation around the character, text and in depth scene study.
The ethos of the Assemble Theatre Company is to create a flexible, daring and creative ensemble that strive to work together to improve both individual acting craft, and a polished theatre performance.
Our theatre companies aim to be some of the most exciting part-time theatre groups in London. Giving you the chance to participate in exciting contemporary theatre productions that fit around your working life.
