Two Year Training
The training lasts two years (six terms) and operates in the evenings and at weekends until the final two terms when daytime work is involved (please see hours for more details).
Four Day Course
The Four Day Course began in 2007. Since then we have seen nearly 3000 people. Some wanted to be actors, others just wanted to spend a week in a different world.
