"the quality of work is outstanding. in a different league."
As a centre of excellence, our classes and workshops are crafted by professionally-trained, outstanding teachers and practitioners. Our students are challenged to think, question and grow as creative, confident and successful individuals and to take ownership of and pride in the exciting work they create together.
Giving equal focus to the drama process and the final product, we are passionate about creating performances and productions that excite and challenge our young actors and showcase their strengths and talents.
Our weekly classes are complemented throughout the year with a host of opportunities for students to enhance their learning experience. Specialist workshops and master-classes are held by visiting top professionals in their field. Special Days allow students the chance to work alongside Stamford Shakespeare Company members in our wonderful open air theatre.
Theatre trips are organised, wherever possible, to broaden students experience of live theatre. LAMDA tuition is offered to students who wish to take the LAMDA acting exams and holiday workshops provide exciting opportunities for students to make theatre and friends in our stunning setting.
Specialist workshops are led by visiting industry practitioners in areas such as Stage-Combat, Singing, Technical Theatre, Physical Theatre, Dance, Shakespeare, TV & film.
Our house, gardens and theatre provide the perfect environment to inspire, create and have fun during our holiday and half-term workshops.
Our special days, which are embedded in the year, offer students a chance to work directly with the Stamford Shakespeare Company in our theatre setting.
