Acting Fundamentals

Find your inner actor through Union House Theatre’s Acting Fundamentals workshops.

Work with actor and theatre-maker Michelle McCowage, as she takes you through the basics of performing for theatre. Begin with understanding actor warm-up training, learn about making character choices, introduction to script analysis and translating ideas from a text into action. No experience is necessary – this intro workshop is open to all. In these fun online sessions, you will also begin to delve into the basics of creating your own performance with the acting techniques you learn. Whether you want to build confidence, meet new friends, or be introduced to a life-long passion for acting, these workshops are for you!

N.B. It is important to attend both sessions as the material and skills build each week.  

When: Wednesday 17th and 24th March from 6.30pm–8pm
Where: Zoom
Cost: Free!
