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.”

In the Autumn term, following a thorough risk assessment, we will be back in the Caversham Centre. There will be lots of logistics to chat through, but overall we’re really excited to be back in person. We’re thrilled with the structure of the year that we’ve arranged, so hope that you are all too.
The first session of the term, as ever, is Bring a Friend Night, so please do so if you can. If your friend signs up, you get a complimentary ticket to The Last Abbot.

RABBLE Theatre offers two scholarships per year, one to a GUOS student and one to a RABBLE Foundations student who shows exceptional promise. Scholarship students receive a 50% reduction in fees for a year (includes Autumn, Spring and Summer classes).
If you wish to be considered, please state so on your enrolment form. Scholarship auditions will be offered at the first session of the Autumn term. You will not have to do anything extra but will be assessed during the session and will have a short interview with the Principle. Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of RABBLE Theatre. Students will be expected to maintain excellent attendance and show commitment to the course. There is no cash equivalent.
