RSC Big Amateur Weekend LTG Members

Big Amateur Weekend 21 and 22 November

Join us for a weekend of workshops, masterclasses and backstage insights, tailor made for amateur theatre makers wanting to develop their performance skills and learn more about how RSC actors prepare, rehearse and perform*.

The weekend includes four workshops covering voice and text, movement, acting and stage combat led by RSC practitioners and leading industry professionals (including the RSC’s Michael Corbidge), a masterclass led by an RSC director, a backstage tour, buffet lunches and a ticket to Wendy and Peter, the RSC’s much acclaimed re-telling of the Peter Pan story, in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Join us at the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare, for an unforgettable theatre experience working in the RSC’s own rehearsal rooms.

Sessions will cover our approach to performing Shakespeare but also a wide range of performance techniques. Suitable for anyone wanting to develop their performing skills for any production – modern or classical. All abilities and levels of experience welcome. Participants must be 18+.
