I am currently performing in Well at The Apollo Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue. I began acting as soon as I left university and without any formal theatre training, I do not know what I would have done without the speech lessons, the workshops and the movement classes offered at the Actors Centre. The Actors Centre is an absolutely fantastic environment in which you can learn freely, without being judged. You can experiment with fantastic teachers on hand guiding and encouraging you as you explore. There is a completely open and generous feeling at the centre where everyone genuinely wants to help you succeed. It is essential, when you start to feel insecure or vulnerable during those inevitable down periods between jobs, to take advantage of what the Actors Centre has to offer.
Whether you need help with your voice or whether you want one-to-one help with an audition speech, the Actors Centre really does do it all. I have participated in excellent classes where seasoned and exceptionally talented actors, casting directors and directors have taken the time to explain to me how I can improve my chances in an audition room and how to make best use of my time in-between jobs. The Actors Centre also provides on hand practical support and I have booked quite a few classes to help me with my dreaded tax return! I will certainly be back when I finish the run of Well.
