Our Process

The Courtyard Theatre works closely together with our education partner Court Theatre Training Company to provide and develop our courses. Through the unique combination of university-level training experience and being housed in a professional working theatre, we believe we can deliver a maximum material in condensed teaching times. This means our learning programmes are rich in cutting-edge methods, yet more affordable than the average course.

We believe that drama training helps to develop everyday life and

professionally applicable skills such as confidence, public speaking, and memory to name a few. Though we are certainly the right place from which to launch an acting career, our short courses are just as valuable for those who are looking to nurture confidence and discover other hidden talents.

We believe that seeing a variety of theatre is as important to learning as being directly involved with a production, which is why we provide free tickets to all our course students for any show at the Courtyard Theatre. Whichever level, of course, you join us on, its never too soon to start making friends and cultivate contacts to move you forward in the industry. The Courtyard Theatre community is a perfect place to start.
