  Do you dream of being a professional actor?  
Showcase The Actors’ Workshop is a unique centre of excellence, providing exceptional training and opportunities for young performers, and professional development for actors. From our base at Factory 8 in Bedminster, Bristol, our team of experienced industry professionals inspires students to raise their game and succeed in an ever-changing media environment.

Whether you are auditioning for drama school through our incredibly successful College Foundation Course, topping up your training via our Saturday Masterclasses, just starting out with our selective Teenage Groups or upping your game at one of our dancing, singing, Pilates or stress management sessions, The Actors’ Workshop will inspire you and provide the skills you need to up your game and further your career.

Based on our phenomenal hit rate for places on BA/MA courses at UK drama schools, we consider ourselves to be at the cutting edge of part-time performing arts training. The Actors’ Workshop’s unique and targeted programmes provide training for the industry by the industry: our teachers are all working professionals with performing and directing careers of their own. (Despite this, our extremely cost-effective classes are based around a rate of just £7 per hour.)

The entertainment industry is highly competitive: success depends on ability and excellence. Raw talent is nothing without an appropriate skill set. We are always on hand to provide careers advice and guidance, and to help students emotionally through the challenges of audition season. Small classes and individual mentoring are the cornerstones of our work: we work closely with each student to unlock potential and exceed expectations.

Courses at The Actors' Workshop are based around key skills needed for theatre, TV and film work. As working actors ourselves, we are constantly enhancing our own skills, and therefore yours. Between us, we have a wide range of specialism, spanning everything from Shakespeare to stage combat, screen acting to musical theatre and dancing. We offer advanced and specialised vocal training, text work and audition practice. Our focus emphasises the need to understand character and motivation: to 'tell the story' in an ever-changing media environment.

Many of our young actors are already working in the business; others are moving on to train at top drama colleges.

Our dedicated  College Foundation Course  prepares candidates for the enormous demands of drama school entry auditions. In an environment where it is easier to get into Oxbridge than into a UK drama school, our annual success rate (currently around 70%) speaks for itself. 

Members of The Actors' Workshop are signed with a variety of top London agents. The Actors' Workshop is affiliated with two vibrant and dynamic London agents: Susan Roberts of SRA and Paul Byram Associates. We work very closely with these agencies to get the very best opportunities for our students. Entry to The Actors' Workshop is by audition for our Sunday Teenage Groups and by interview for the College Foundation Course. All other classes and workshops are ‘open entry.’ Please click the links to to find out more about each course.

The Actors' Workshop holds annual showcases at major Bristol Theatres to promote our students in a wider forum. We also set up studio shows and film project screenings on a regular basis.
