DAVID JOHNSON'S COURSE STRUCTURE - YOUNG PEOPLE


For ADULTS please click here >>


YOUNG PEOPLE: ages 8 to 18 ** (Please see below)
Sessions are weekly for 90 minutes per session.

All work is based on what is needed to undertake a professional T.V. / film / theatre casting and actual work: script work, improvisation, camera work, taking direction, studio discipline and so on. The work is fun and creative but with one eye on ongoing professional casting.

Every set of sessions will automatically lead to an onstage performance, either of a specially created text or published outstanding play. Older students are invited to look at modern authors as well as Shakespeare, Brecht, Berkoff and many others.

David frequently takes productions to the Edinburgh International Festival, as well as other venues of special interest, such as the original Georgian Theatre Royal in Richmond, Yorkshire, as well as playing more locally in professional venues.

The ethos is one of high-energy, fun, but achievement without a feeling of competitive pressure.

Agents and casting directors are invited to both the sessions and productions.

For all applicants the first session(s) will be free until the right working Group is found.

Age 8 to 18: the age of 18 for the top age bracket group is variable; some young people are better going into the adult course at or below that age. Some over eighteens are better taking part in the large-scale productions of the top-teens groups. Age is not the important issue in the business: it's how you look and handle that is important.
