Professional Masterclass Programme



This season we are launching a series of skills masterclasses for professional actors. Whether you have recently graduated or have been working in the industry for years and want to brush up on your skills, this drop-in programme offers the chance to pick and choose the areas you want to focus on, or to sign up for all four sessions and work with a group of new people on a range of skills.

Masterclasses will be led by our artistic director, James Haddrell. Directing credits in 2018 included the UK premiere of Tracey Power’s international adaptation of The Jungle Book, a rare revival of Michael Frayn’s HERE and a West End reading of Siân Rowland’s Learning To Swim.
