The Actor Class

Have you always wanted to try acting but never had the opportunity? Or have you performed in the past and would like to reconnect with your craft? Either way, The Actor Class is here for you.

Ludovico Studio's acting classes aim to provide participants with the skills necessary to thrive in TV, film and theatre. Every class is designed specifically for beginners, and no experience is necessary.

Risks are encouraged, success is celebrated and mistakes are all part of the process, helping each actor to reach their fullest potential, whether you’re aged 18 or 80.

Our only requirements are an open-mind, serious commitment and shared enthusiasm!

An acting career can sometimes feel out of reach, so The Actor Class bridges the gap by bringing the industry to you via additional workshops and seminars with established actors, directors and casting directors.

They also offer creative opportunities across the year via in-house media/film projects and by collaborating with various outside organisations.

The course provides a tailored learning experience through specific teaching methods, plus free 1-2-1 mentoring sessions and ‘out of hours’ advice when needed.

The main course will comprise 8 weekly sessions from Wednesday 25 May - Wednesday 13 July 2022 and Thursday 26 May - Thursday 21 July 2022 at Oldham Coliseum Theatre. Sessions run from 6.30pm-8.30pm.
