The Swan Theatre School in Worcester provided me with a unique opportunity to prepare for life as a professional actor. The one year part time course covered many aspects of acting, singing and audition technique as well as guidance on industry politics and finding work, all within the environment of a busy working theatre.


Having previously acted a lot in amateur theatre, I decided in my late thirties to pursue a career as a professional actor but did not have the time, money or inclination to do a full time three year drama school course. The Swan Theatre School’s part time one year course gave me a perfect introduction to the world of professional acting and was an ideal preparation for life as a jobbing actor. I was also provided with my first headshots and recorded a voice showreel.


Since completing the course I have enjoyed four busy years working as an actor and much of the credit for this can be put down to the training and introduction to the industry that I received at the Swan Theatre School. The school also offered an ideal preparation ground for younger students who wished to subsequently go on to do a full time drama school course. I am extremely happy with and grateful for the training I received and I would heartily recommend the Swan Theatre School to others.
