The opportunity for local adults to learn theatre and performance skills in a relaxing and fun environment, taught by world-class actors, is returning to the city next month.
The Natural Theatre Company specialise in interactive comedy performances that take place in unconventional spaces all around the world.
In 2018 they launched their Adult Theatre School in Bath, and earlier this year created a Bristol branch in the city’s Southville area.
The classes, which are suitable for participants of all abilities, offer an alternative to traditional performance techniques: students will be taught the Naturals’ trademark style of comedy acting, including improvisation skills, physical performance and street theatre.
They will get the chance to wear costume from the company’s extensive collection, and learn about classic theatre pieces from their 50-year history as a performance company.
The evening classes are designed for anyone with an enthusiasm for performance, whether they would like to build self-confidence, have an interest in acting professionally, or just want to start a new hobby and meet new people.
Elle Roberts, Company Manager of the Natural Theatre Company, said: “We started the Adult Theatre School with the aim of giving grown-ups a chance to have fun and de-stress after work in a supportive environment.
“We believe that having fun is just as important for adults as it is for children!”
The classes will take place at the company’s headquarters in Widcombe and will begin on Monday 23rd September, running weekly until Monday 2nd December with a half-term break on 28th October.
