Theatreworks training is delivered by highly qualified and experienced directors and actors who will teach you techniques to improve your communication, voice, body language and personal impact. 

Our training can take place in-person either at a National Theatre rehearsal room or your own venue, or online over video conferencing platforms such as Zoom. 

We use our tried and tested "rehearsal room” approach to make the training experiential, practical and effective. Our hands-on workshops are led by leading theatre practitioners who will share tips and techniques to improve your presence, confidence and impact. 

Theatreworks courses provide a safe place for participants of any level to experiment with their individual communication style.
