Another day of sun- join us for summer workshops that'll make your heart sing!
This warm weather makes us want to kick up our heels and sing our hearts out! If you feel the same, you're in luck.
Whether you've just finished performing in a show, are gathering your energy for an audition or simply want to indulge your creative side, we'd like to introduce Centre Stage Summer Sessions - a month of workshops to brush up your show skills.
We've put together a programme of four one-day workshops led by a talented team of Centre Stagers where you'll have the chance to learn acting through song, audition techniques, improvisation, comedy and more!
Design your own Summer Sessions!
Each week, there'll be two masterclasses from different teachers and every session includes two 2.5 hour masterclasses and a lunch break at central London venues AMTA and Union Theatre throughout June.
Each five hour session is £15 or a £50 multi-pass will book you onto all four sessions (eight masterclasses) with a saving of £10. Attend just one session or all four to design your own Summer Sessions experience, choosing from:
