Drama Workshops


The vibrant drama workshops are a great place to start for any budding actor!


The classes cover every aspect of drama technique and are carefully designed to develop individual talents for television and theatre acting.


Class work includes: Improvisation, Mime, Audition technique, Script, Choral Speaking, Use of Voice, Stanislavski and Brecht work and much much more!


Musical Theatre


These lessons encompass the three major disciplines: singing, dancing and acting. The lively and fun classes give a taste of many West End style musicals and students can work towards the LAMDA Musical Theatre examinations yearly.


LAMDA Speech and Acting Tuition


Supplimentary lessons are available for students wishing to take drama studies a little more seriously. They are a great way to build confidence and develope communication skills.


Students work towards examinations twice yearly at our private exam centres with our progressive training programme.


The lessons can be taken privately or as part of a small group format. Both options give students the very best tuition.


Holiday activities....


For students that just can't keep away Ripley Academy offers a super range of fun activities in our term breaks.


At Easter we have a 3 day long theatre course. Including a scripted performance and dance routines in-keeping with the theme and of course an Easter egg hunt!!!


The first week of the summer holidays sees our week long Summer School bounce into life for students up to 12 years old. Please see News and Events for this year's information.


In the second week of the summer holidays Ripley Academy of Drama's Film School keeps senior students (12 and over's) busy. They aim to write, film, direct and produce their own film in a week!


October half term wouldn't be complete without our scaretastic Halloween Day!


There are also many other Sunday workshop courses throughout the year with guest teachers and industry professionals. Our students get a variety of experiences to add to their CV's.
