Get Up On Stage is our supportive, high-quality and fun acting school for adults. You will work with RABBLE’s professional directors, fight choreographers, voice specialists and actors, learning about the skills needed in theatre.
The course focuses on 3 areas:
Classes in Stage Combat and Movement will offer new skills and professional qualifications. Students will study Stage Combat and have the opportunity to take an exam with the Academy of Performance Combat giving them a professional qualification recognised by Equity.
Students will learn to create characters and explore text for performance. They will work on monologues, duologues and scenes for performance. They will also have the option of taking a group LAMDA acting exam performing the scenes they have created and getting a qualification in acting.
Devising and improvisation lessons will give students outstanding new skills and confidence. Students will work with a professional improvisation teacher to create scenes and sketches. Performance opportunities at improv nights will offer students the chance to share their new skills and develop confidence.
“The guest tutors have all been outstanding (so have the regulars!) and they have shared very valuable information, techniques and tips with us.”

This term at Get Up On Stage, students are focusing on the works of celebrated British playwright and director, Anthony Minghella. Following auditions in the opening week, casts will then rehearse the plays before sharing their work with friends and family at the end of term. As well as that, however, a diverse range of respected industry professionals will be offering masterclasses on a broad range of skills, from Acting for Video Games, to Speaking Shakespeare.
