Whilst offering a practical and experiential training – the syllabus is focused towards all students taking a ATCL Diploma (Trinity) with the potential to move on to the LTCL. Download the syllabus with more information here. Actors who arrive with relevant experience and show special maturity and promise, may, in consultation with Cygnet staff, be invited to graduate after two years. View a full copy of our Cygnet Prospectus for more information.
Each term scenes are prepared for performance assessment under audition conditions. The preparation encourages the practical application of all areas of the classwork and a focus upon the individual’s growing technique.
Acting needs as much training as any of the arts and the training must be both practical and precise. Three years is only a beginning: the learning process continues throughout life. Student actors in the Cygnet Company are given the opportunity to do highly disciplined work. They are expected to be ready for this.
Entry for all courses is by audition. Applicants will be required to participate in group workshops as well as performing their own individual pieces, they may also be invited to attend a short interview. Download our: Cygnet Audition Application Form.
