An Intermediate Level of Part-Time Training
Tuesday & Thursday Evenings| October 2023 to June 2024
GSA Stage is the third level in the GSA Part-time Training Suite. This is an advanced training course for adults who have completed substantial experience or prior actor training. If you are searching for a greater challenge, this is the course for you. This course takes place two evenings a week and builds on existing acting skills, while introducing students to a variety of specific performance skills. Entry to the course is audition only. The audition panel will assess the auditionee’s skill and suitability. Once successful, students will be expected to commit to all three terms.
This course will present students with the opportunity to challenge themselves further, as they are expected to take their training to the next level. By introducing the group to more complex texts and acting methods your tutor will support you on your continued learning journey. All members of the class will be expected to embark on their own independent study. Each group will work with a specific tutor throughout the three terms, while guest tutors will teach masterclasses over the course of the year.
The course takes place over three terms from October to June, with classes taking place two evenings a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays
