Workshops for Actors

etc has run many workshops for actors aimed at developing and honing acting skills. 

We have run masterclasses in scenes and monologues, as well as voice projection, and Shakespeare text. Workshops are sometimes restricted to cast involved in our productions.

Our most recent workshop was focussed upon American Accent, and conducted by guest tutor Pamela Kay.
