Actor’s Training Programme, 20 Stories High

Fundamentals of acting in 10 weeks
April – June 2024

20 Stories High are proud to announce the return of their 10-week professional development programme. This year’s programme is led by Keith Saha, Artistic Director and co-CEO for 20 Stories High, along with several incredible freelance specialists from around the UK.

Over 10 weeks, 14 participants will explore the following techniques, culminating in a sharing.

  • Icebreakers and games
  • Characterisation
  • Movement and physical theatre
  • Heightened Text
  • Voice 
  • Text Work
  • TV Acting / Self Tapes

This programme aims to demystify theatre jargon and equip artists with tools to enter rehearsal rooms with confidence.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: WEDNESDAY 20 MARCH, 5PM.

Supported by Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse. With support from LAMDA and Unity Theatre.

The Actor’s Training Programme is for artists interested in performing who meet the following criteria;

  • aged 18-30
  • based in Merseyside 
  • early career (by this we mean either that you have little to no professional acting experience, or that you have some professional acting experience but no formal training in theatre)
  • Preference will be given to artists who have faced barriers when accessing training, for instance:
    • People from the Global Majority
    • People with barriers accessing education or training
    • LGBTQIA+ people
    • People who have faced financial challenges
    • Deaf and Disabled people
    • Migrant artists 
    • People who have experienced mental and/or physical health challenges
    • People with extra responsibilities at home (e.g. primary caregiver for a relative or responsible for the care of children)

This is because these artists have been historically underrepresented in the Liverpool theatre industry, and elsewhere. 

We’re looking for 14 artists who can commit to all 10 workshop dates.
If you have any questions or concerns about this please get in touch. 

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 20 March, 5pm.

Supported by Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse. With support from LAMDA and Unity Theatre.
