RSC's Big Amateur Theatre Makers Weekend

RSC's Big Amateur Theatre Makers' Weekend

  • Four skills workshops
  • A ticket to our production of 
    Love's Labour's Won in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre
  • Director master class

Perfect for those wishing to develop their performance skills and learn more about how our actors prepare, rehearse and perform, the event promises to be an unforgettable theatre experience working in our own rehearsal rooms and on stage.

Skills workshops
Four workshops, led by RSC practitioners and industry professionals, will cover the following areas:

  • Voice and Text
  • Movement
  • Acting
  • Stage Combat

The sessions will focus on our approach to performing Shakespeare as well as looking at a wide range of performance techniques.

The workshops will be useful to anyone wishing to develop their performing skills for modern or classical productions, and all abilities and levels of experience are welcome. Participants must be aged 18 or over.

As part of the weekend, participants will have the chance to attend a master class with an RSC director and a tour backstage at our famous theatres. The price also includes a ticket to the evening performance of Love's Labour's Won on Saturday 25 October.
