Off the Beaten Track to coming back to CGGS. The second week of the holidays students are invited to take part in a 3-day workshop with professional actors.
Throughout the three days they will direct you in a theatre scene which you will show to an audience on the final day. They will also teach you to act in front of a camera using TV scripts and commercials. Work on a TV or film scene that will be professionally filmed and get a high quality show reel to take home.
They will share practical tips on how to start your acting career with a question and answer session.
