Actout is a curriculum-focused project that helps to equip students with acting skills to approach play texts and devised material at Key Stages 4 & 5. Led by industry professionals, this project is perfect for exploring specific acting styles and techniques. 

Specifically, actout links to Acting with Text and Devising within the GCSE Drama, BTEC Performing Arts and A Level Theatre Studies curriculum.

The project has two pathways and you can choose whichever best matches your needs.

Each pathway includes four workshops:

Pathway 1: Acting with text

1.   Textual analysis

2.   Character development

3.   Approaches to line learning

4.   Communicating meaning to an audience

"The tutor was amazing and instantly had our students engaged in approaching to Stanislavski. They really enjoyed his industry experience and approach! An excellent way to start the term"

St. Charles Catholic Sixth Form (2018/19 Participants)


Pathway 2: Acting in devised performance

1.   Starting points for devising

2.   How to use and apply research

3.   Fixing style

4.   Building character

"I couldnt think of a better way to introduce our students to Berkoff. The workshops were fun and engaging. The students will use these devising approaches when they explore their devised component for GCSE"

Featherstone High School (2018/19 Participants)

As well as either workshop series, the actout experience also includes a visit to see a matinee or evening performance of a London theatre production, which is chosen to enhance and reinforce what students learn during the workshops. 

Cost: £300 for 4 x 2hr workshops, plus an additional £8 per theatre ticket

Available in the autumn term of the 2018/19 Academic Year
