For improv – you don’t need theatre experience.

You don’t need to be a “funny person.” Just come in ready to have a good time.
Improv is an amazing way to help people connect with each other and have a reignite their sense of play.

We love sharing the powerful tools and techniques of this art form with others.
Improvisation is a skill that benefits everyone. That’s why we created a workshop program that focuses on providing the best quality teachers and course content in a learning environment that is safe, supportive, respectful and responsive to students needs.

For those seeking a career in the arts, to those wishing to develop communication or storytelling skills, or those who want more creativity, play and laughter in their life, improv is for you!

Play in a Day

You will create a brand new play and perform it at the end of the workshop.

Does it sound incredible? It is! So prepare for a totally exhausting and utterly exhilarating day!

We begin by getting to know each other, then it’s straight down to the serious business of preparing a play! We will brain-storm ideas, prepare the script, learn lines and then rehearse, rehearse, rehearse!

The day will climax with a performance in front of a real audience!

It will be a full day and guaranteed to be one of the most thrilling adventures you have ever experienced! And you will be guided by a professional director all the way.

(The workshop, and performance, will be in English. Suitable for everyone 14+)

Next workshop: Saturday 18 May

Length: 8.5 hours (includes performance)

Becoming an Actor

(part I, II and III)

Courses are for anyone interested in becoming an actor. The course acts as a taster of drama school training, a broad introduction to the craft of acting, and acting as a profession.

Becoming an Actor is aimed at those currently outside the industry, but will provide a similar level of training as is given to professional actors.

There are three courses, and take place either in the evening or at weekends.

You will work with both contemporary and classic texts, exploring ways of approaching plays and developing character, motive and a compelling performance. You will grow in confidence, learn to trust others and gain skills that can be applied to rehearsal and performance.

Content includes key elements of actor training including voice, movement, character, scene and text work, improvisation and audition technique. The course is taught in a way that aims to replicate closely the professional rehearsal room and the self-discipline, creative risk-taking and professional work ethic involved in being a professional actor.

All workshops will be taught by ETTC’s artistic director and company members.

Next workshop: 15, 22, 29 April (Monday evenings 18:30-20:30)

Length: 3x 2 hours
