Event Details
With over 40 years experience, Bristol School of Performing Arts is the largest and most successful of its kind in the West Country. The basis of the School’s teaching philosophy is simple -“Education through Performance”.

The school covers all aspects of Theatre and Television training, employing without doubt the largest and most varied pool of talented tutors, many of whom are industry professionals.

BSP Arts proudly boasts a 100% exam success rate.

Because of its size, and the high regard in which it is held by all the major agencies and producing managements, the School is able to boast a veritable ’Who’s who’ amongst its seemingly never-ending list of professional * - both in theatre and television.

Don’t be fooled by those who claim to ‘teach’ talent. Talent is a gift! Good training improves that gift. If you have that gift, BSP Arts is the school for you!

What we do in class: Our older students continue to gain confidence in their group and solo drama work.

During the year, our students work hard to prepare for the in-house show which is performed in our in-house White Hart theatre. This is an excellent opportunity for them to show all they’ve learned and experience performing to an audience on stage for the first time.

Students are taught how to respond to stage direction and learn a variety of techniques required to become a performer. Topics can include:

Improvisation- Theatre games and group activities allowing students to build their own characters and create their own stories. An important part of drama training which encourages exploration of a variety of theatre techniques and helps to build confidence.

Script work- Group scenes, duologues and monologues from old and modern plays.

Musical Theatre- Learning a variety of song and dance pieces from well known musicals in preparation for performance. Encouraging solo performances for those that wish.

Mime, movement, radio, acting for television and presenting are some other areas of performing arts also explored.
