Drama matters

Arts Centre, Bideford

Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone with an interest in and a desire to learn about acting and performing at entry level. You will use these skills to develop communication and confidence, whilst improving personal awareness and the ability to relate to others. This course is suitable for anyone who is being supported on a day-to-day basis, but who is hoping to be more independent in their daily life

Course content

Working in a team to produce a short film (which will be available on DVD for 50p to cover the costs of the disc), you will be given the opportunity to develop acting, dancing and/or singing skills. You may prefer operating the camera, clapperboard, doing sound effects and/or directing. While working on the characters you will consider communication, personal qualities and behaviour, and how you can use these skills to improve relationships in your life

Support and feedback

You will decide which skills/outcomes are most important to you and have the opportunity to discuss your progress regularly with your tutor.

Additional costs and requirements

You may need to remember to bring suitable clothing once we have sorted our costumes out. You do need to be committed to attend sessions in which your parts are to be rehearsed/filmed.

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?

You may wish to practise or make costumes/props in your own time but this is not compulsory.
