Screen Acting.png



This course was launched sometime ago and received huge numbers of applications. So, we brought it back AGAIN! 


This first course will take place over 8 weeks; 1 night a week for 4 hours. (5:30-9:30pm). The small numbers in the classes ensure that the work is detailed, focussed and intense. 


This ENTRY CLASS provides the first of 3 terms, moving into ADVANCED and PROFESSIONAL classes. The 3 terms are progressive training and each term must be completed before progressing to the next.

With Karen Henthorn


With returning specialist, Karen Henthorn, the classes will cover all of the essentials that any screen actor needs, from working for the truth on camera, to active listening, scene work, on-set jargon, hitting marks, the 'TV Voice' and more. Karen has worked extensively in screen acting for

over a decade and has graced our screens in hit television shows such as 'The Street', 'Silent Witness', 'In The Flesh', 'Coronation Street', 'Shameless' and more. Alongside this, Karen has not only taught, but designed courses at some of the leading, 'Drama UK' accredited Drama Schools in the country including; Rose Bruford, Birmingham School of Acting, Manchester Metropolitan School of Theatre and Italia Conti as well as many other incredibly successful establishments.

PLEASE NOTE: The course is a progressive course and work will be done primarily in pairs, running to the model of professional actor training. Whereas we fully appreciate that there are some unavoidable situations, we would ask that students only sign up to this course who can FULLY commit to the full 8 weeks. In missing a week, not only will your work suffer, but your absence will have a detrimental effect on your working partner. If we feel that an actor has not reached the standard we expect from our students, at the end of the block, we may ask actors to re-visit the same 8 weeks again. This decision is at the discretion of Manchester Actors' Platform all students will have their work assessed throughout.


JUST £375 

Payment must be made before the first class. 

An £100 deposit is required from all students to secure a place on the course.
