Specialist Workshops

At Performers Theatre Company, part of our vision is to 'give our young people the chance to work with industry professionals through workshops and masterclasses'. We believe it to be hugely important that children, whether they are enrolled at Performers or not, are given experiences that allow them to work with professionals that have differing experiences, ideas and skills from our teachers; it adds further thrill and excitement for our children and widens their horizons. 

 

Performers will aim to offer regular workshops/masterclasses throughout the academic year to all children (enrolled or not).

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

SCREEN ACTING MASTERCLASS

 

On Saturday 21st October, we welcome industry professional of 40 years, Matthew Bearne to our school where he will conduct a 3 hour screen acting masterclass. 

Matthew Bearne brings 40 years of industry experience. He started out at 14 as a comedian (to get his Equity card), trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, securing IMDB credits for Film, TV, and Voice over. 

In his career, he has been flown all over the world to star in commercials for the world's biggest brands.  

 

10 years ago, he set up a Film School because his daughter wanted to do something on a Saturday. It's now award winning. He directs at least three short films a week, as he also runs one of the country's leading showreel companies. A reel he did for a young actor, helped them secure a pivotal role in 'Barbie'.

 

"I feel very fortunate, with my experience of the entertainment industry. From that little lad in the school play to standing on a set as an actor, at either Pinewood, Leavesdon, or Shepperton and to work in an industry with all its sense of history and the greats that have stood there before you.. to pass on what I've learnt and experienced.. well, it's a privilege."

 

"My workshop will cover all that you need to know, starting with the script through to hearing 'Cut!' I very much look forward to seeing the students progress in the workshop and to support their journey as they develop their on screen storytelling skills."
