Acting Level 3 Diploma + Extended Diploma in Performing Arts
What is it?
The Level 3 Acting Diploma is a unique two-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.
Is it for me?
This course covers a range of Acting skills and techniques. With our dedicated team of industry professionals guiding and supporting you, you will explore different acting styles and approaches and look at the work of different playwrights and practitioners. You will develop your acting and vocal skills, prepare audition material, and develop your rehearsal and performance skills. You will explore ensemble, create and devise material through rehearsal and learn to refine your work before performing to a paying public audience. The advanced training requires a high level of self-discipline and commitment, and will require you to attend rehearsals and performances throughout the two years.
The course includes written work based around research and personal development, and requires you to keep a creative e-diary/blog site of your work and to evaluate yourself both during and after rehearsal and performance.
