Theatre Summer School 2012

We’re now receiving a steady stream of bookings since we launched Theatre Summer School 2012. A choice of two fantastic courses to be held at the University of Wales, Newport – Caerleon Campus (South East Wales) from 12th – 18th August. Easily accessible from road, rail and air!
Competitively priced, a range of discounts and an Easier Payment Plan to help spread the cost.
This year’s choice of courses are…

Theatre Mezze with Ben Humphrey
A jam-packed course designed to take your knowledge and practice of theatre to a whole new level. Devising, acting, vocal-work, mask-work, physical theatre and text study will be woven into a week of intense and exciting work that will improve your theatrical stamina and dexterity.
Theatre Mezze is led by Ben Humphrey: Assoc Director of Worcester Repertory Company, Artistic Director of the Swan Youth Theatre and one of the country’s most popular GoDA adjudicators.
Approaching Shakespeare with the RSC
Join practitioners from the world-class Royal Shakespeare Company for a series of intensive workshops. Throughout the week you will work to explore and unlock the language of Shakespeare and bring the text to life. The course will continue to explore how one approaches staging a Shakespeare production.
Approaching Shakespeare will be led in three parts by RSC practitioners: Firstly, Voice practitioner Victoria Williams (recently worked on the 7 times Olivier winning Matilda) will be exploring voice and text. Following her, Anna Morrissey from the RSC Movement department will be working with attendees on physicalising the text and Helen Leblique (RSC Directing practitioner) will be closing the week by putting scenes together, implementing the techniques explored earlier in the week.
Both courses are suitable for both beginners and the more experienced.
Course fees range from £310 – £600*. Great value for a week of fantastic theatre training!
Discounts are also available if you are booking more than one place. Plus, if you would like to spread the payments through our Easier Payment Plan, contact Gary on +44 (0)29 2045 2200 or at
