About the Course
If you’re reading this it’s because you already know the unbeatable excitement of live performance. No amount of technology can replace watching real actors, or having a live audience right in front of you. That’s what we study.
To find out about our fantastic range of productions, our trips to the Edinburgh Fringe, our home grown Fusion Festival at The Junction and much more. visit our department website: www.hillsroadperformingarts.co.uk
What does the course involve?
It involves seeing professional productions. That’s essential. In recent years we have been to the Globe, the Royal Court, The Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre, the Barbican, the Almeida as well as local venues such as Cambridge Arts Theatre and the Junction.
You will participate in professional drama workshops. Actors from a range of theatre companies have visited this year to work with our students. You will spend lessons exploring plays practically. Finally, you will develop your own performance skills in a range of styles, informed by the theories of the greatest practitioners.
We have our own home-grown Edinburgh Fringe company, Babolin Theatre, who for the last ten summers have created brand new plays that have been taken to the Edinburgh Fringe earning four and five star reviews. Our latest production, the Frantic Canticles of Little Brother Fish,
won an Outstanding Theatre award. You can find it on YouTube
