The REP offers a variety of ways for the local community to get involved and learn more about theatre. From seeing a show and undertaking a backstage tour to visiting an Open Day or performing with a community cast - the choice is yours!
Have you always wanted to try acting? Would you like to develop your acting skills? Or are you just looking for a new hobby?
If so, The REP would love for you to join our new Adult Drama Company.
The REP has set up two new adult drama groups for people aged 25 and over that will meet every week on Monday evenings and Wedensday mornings from September 2018.
Each week, participants will take part in workshops and rehearsals and perform in one of our theatre spaces. These sessions will work towards a performance in summer where you will be able to perform on The REP stage.
Whether you've performed many times, had a little acting experience or never tried it before, this is the perfect opportunity to develop your skills, express yourself and even make some new friends.
Price per term (minimum of 10 sessions): £57.50

A community cast is composed of talented volunteer performers from the local area who are given the chance to perform alongside professional actors in a REP show, sometimes for fun, sometimes as a step on the road to a professional acting career. Former REP community cast members have gone on to work with Bristol Old Vic, the National Theatre and the RSC.
