Warmup Techniques


Scripted and Devised Scenes

Looking to work on your acting skills, meet new people and just get out and “play”?


Workshop Theatre’s Actor’s Workshop might be just the thing for you. We’ll practice warmup techniques, improv games, and scripted scene work.

Each term will end with showcase performances that will include feedback from the audience and members of Workshop Theatre.

Under the direction and guidance of AJ Pearce, individuals will be able to come and experience a whole different side to theatre!
