GSA Part-Time Training Suite

A Part Time Actor Training Programme

The GSA Part-Time Training Suite provides a space for aspiring adult actors and theatre-makers to develop their skills. Each level of the course spans nine months and takes place two evenings a week. 

On successfully auditioning, we will place you in the level of the Suite that is most suited to your skill and experience. Once offered a place, you will work with tutors and industry professionals with decades of involvement across a wide range of performing arts. These tutors will combine their years of experience with pedagogical research and study to deliver training that is engaging and valuable to your future and creative journey. 

The GSA prides itself on being a community and your time with us will not only enhance your performance skills, but it will also give you the opportunity to expand your network and make lifelong friends.
