Acting Level 2 Diploma in Performing & Production Arts (Acting)
What is it?
The Intermediate Acting Diploma is a unique one year training programme where actors learn to work as professionals in a modern, industry-relevant environment.
Actors work as part of a theatre company whilst developing their own skills in voice and movement and using them to create believable and fully rounded characters for the stage.
The Miskin aims to produce actors who are both dynamic and interesting and who can draw on their own, often varied and wide ranging life experiences, to produce work that is truthful and engaging.
The Miskin Theatre is a centre for excellence and a unique training environment, which provides an inspiring, nurturing, safe and supportive environment for actors.
The Miskin Theatre Company has an absolute commitment to nurture and guide each actor to discover and develop their individual and unique talents and skills to the fullest possible extent.
The demands are real and the success of our training can be seen in the outstanding level of public performance we produce here.
