Here at Theatre Royal Dumfries, we offer a variety of workshops for all ages.

Adult Acting Workshops

Wednesday Evenings: Open to everyone 

Hang up your normal Wednesday evening’s entertainment and instead, come along and have a fun packed evening playing, performing and developing your acting skills and techniques, supported by a professional actor and director. 


Improvisation & Games (6:30 to 7:30PM) 
A fun and informal group for adults who want to either build on their current performance skills or find and grow new ones. Working with improvisation techniques, participants will have a safe place to test their acting skills, and develop new performances. On top of a selection of the best drama games around, this will be a fun class to be a part of! 
Suits all levels of experience. 


Scenes & Stagecraft (7:45 to 8:45PM) 
Informal and sociable weekly play-reading group exploring an exciting mix of contemporary and classic scripts. The sessions also look at developing stagecraft skills, reading scripts and getting them on their feet, to help participants fulfil their acting potential. 
No advance reading is required – enjoy finding out what happens each week! 
Suits those who have attended the Improvisation & Games session, or have previous drama experience.
