Every Saturday will ignite the imagination of 8 -18* year olds (8-12yrs & 13-18yrs), sharpening their acting skills, strengthening their confidence and introducing them to the exciting world of theatre.
This term we'll be exploring different methods of devising and honing our improvising skills - discovering new ways of story-telling. There'll also be the exciting opportunity for the older group to take part in a GSC public performance! (but shhh, that's got to stay under wraps for now)
Over the 12 weeks we'll learn how to create characters, improvise, get to grips with the text and on top of that, we'll be learning Stage Fighting sequences to put in the show! As well as an exhilarating skill, stage combat also teaches participants about spatial awareness, clear storytelling, body language, and about working together. GSC Saturdays are led by professional actors and workshop leaders with years of experience in the industry and carry full CRB certificates.
Term fee: £150
11 January - 05 April 2014 (Half Term 22 Feb)
26 April - 12 July 2014 (Half Term 31 May)

GSC Drama Sprites
From January 2012 onwards GSC have launched a series of after-school Drama Clubs at local Primary Schools in Guildford for 7-11 year olds.
GSC Drama Sprites will teach your child to tell stories in a fun and interactive way, to create characters, to use their imaginations and to work and play as a team. Drama helps build confidence and teaches better communication skills. We will even explore a Shakespeare character or two! Above all we will have FUN!
These are currently at Queen Eleanor’s C of E Junior School (2 classes) and Sandfield Primary School.
For an application form simply email us and we'll send the appropriate one out to you.
If you would like GSC to bring their drama classes to your school, contact Sarah by email, or call 07957 440866.
All GSC teachers are fully CRB checked and are professional actors/workshop leaders.
The Bard's Not That Hard!
Spring Term: TWELFTH NIGHT
"The classes are a joy" ~ "Such serious fun!"
Want to understand how to read or watch a Shakespeare play better? ~ Want to discover how actors make a character come alive...
Every week we’ll explore the mechanics behind how Shakespeare and why Shakespeare wrote the way he did. These fun, practical evening classes are suitable for all ages and all levels, and are designed to help you discover and enjoy Shakespeare with confidence.
"Enthusiasm and fun - two words which I had previously thought were impossible to put in the same sentence as Shakespeare!"
They’re also perfect for those who just want to learn more about Shakespeare, his plays and enhance your enjoyment of watching them!
"A truly special term, there was a real sense of friendship and community created."
This term we'll be exploring Twelfth Night - Will's sublime comedy of mistaken identity, lost twins, cakes and ale, yellow stockings and plenty of cheeky debauchery!
"A marvellous opportunity - in a fun and supportive environment. I just love it."
Classes are run in a supportive and informal atmosphere by professional actors and workshop leaders who have a wealth of knowledge and first-hand experience of working with Shakespeare.
