Role Play Workshop


  • Role Play, Play the Part You Want on Stage, at Work, in your Life!

    City Acting Role Play Workshop is open to all. No previous experience is needed.

    * RADA Studios, WC1 - Saturday 10 February, 11am-4pm

    Fees: 1 Day Workshop £65

    Course Details

    How many characters do we play in our daily life? Do we choose these parts deliberately to answer the circumstances at best? How to gain confidence in our ability to listen and communicate, think on our feet and play the part we want? 

    The day will start with a playful vocal and physical warm-up that will help you to relate to your body and find your centre to ensure you feel relaxed and ready for the day workshop.

    In the first part of the program we will be looking at the notion of status and how it translates physically, in the way we use our bodies and inhabit the space around us. Then, by working in pairs and small groups doing improvisation games, you’ll gain confidence and spontaneity while playing a wide range of characters.

    In the afternoon we'll practise our news skills using simple scripted scenes. We'll explore the actor's many options of delivering the same lines while affecting his/her partner in different ways and eventually changing the outcome of the initial situation.

    The workshop is open to all. No previous experience is needed. We keep group sizes small in order for the facilitator to give you a lot of individual feedback to encourage an intimate, friendly, and fun atmosphere in which you can learn and grow.
