Open Auditions for courses and productions 2016-2017

We are holding open audition workshop for our forthcoming productions and courses on 8 August 2016 between 2pm and 5pm at the Maltings Arts Theatre, but we’ve had a change of plan – so if you are interested we have another cunning plan so call us as soon as possible.  Scholarships and bursaries may be available for those showing real potential.

Best School of Acting is a unique concept in part-time theatre training – a set of weekly classes focused on acting for students aged 8 to 18.

Since its establishment 4 years ago, the schools become a well-respected and very successful part of the local theatre community, providing expert training in aspects of acting to committed and enthusiastic students. The classes provide excellent support to those studying drama at GCSE, BTec or A level as well as those considering acting as a career.

Recent successes have included students winning places at leading drama schools, places at the NYT and roles in the profession, as well as last year’s amazing success at the National Theatre with The Boy Preference.

The school is currently full, but with some students graduating this July we will have a small number of places available for new students to start in September and we are holding an audition workshop for interested students from 2pm to 5pm on Monday 8th August 2016 at The Malting Arts Centre.

The workshop is as much for you as it is for us! You’ll get to see the kinds of things we do in class and meet the staff. We are just looking for a positive attitude and commitment – it is an ‘inclusive’ rather than an ‘exclusive’ process. And we guarantee you will enjoy it.

We do have scholarships available for those in whom we see real development potential – not necessarily in pure acting talent terms, but in the scope there might be for real progression given the right coaching. These would be awarded following the workshop and may be worth up to 100% of the class fees.

If you’d like to be considered, come and meet us then – you just need to book in advance. Call us, email us at [email protected] or book online.
