"Louise, I wanted to thank you for your vast support.  Your student is an incredible young man, very talented and special.  Roland was very, very happy with his peformance". - Kirstin Winkler, co-producer to Roland Emmerich on 'Anonymous' (set for release in 2011).

Students attend a weekly workshop as well as individual classes where they study script work and set text.  Cheltenham Drama Studio is not a stage school and it's aim is to develop young people's acting skills while retaining a sense of natural spontaneity.

During the workshops students work on devised performance and improvisation, a basic adting element which teaches the art of spontaneous creation in acting, audtion technique, cold reading, script analysis and character development.  Students also experience mock auditions, which equips them with the skills and knowledge needed for real audition scenarios.
