Performance is, naturally, a key part of any training and each Best School of Acting group is given plenty of opportunity to deliver rehearsed pieces to audiences. There is a public show for each group once a year.
We value the development of every student which is why we invest in small cast number productions, giving opportunity and stage time to everyone.
In March 2016 at Trestle Arts Base our Advanced group presented a challenging evening of pieces by Dario Fo and Franca Rame – Acting Out. You can see some of the performances by clicking the links below.
On 13 December 2015 our Intermediate and Foundation groups presented an hilarious pantomime double bill, including a raucous version of Robin Hood.

We encourage our students to take part in as many external performances as they can reasonably manage – school, local amateur or one of the ‘performance groups’. Our course provides them with the tools and techniques to be successful!
Best School of Acting students will share their work and deliver performances for their peers and parents/guardians, but the main focus of each class and term will be on the building of skills and talent that can be used in performances and life.We are considering a BSA Performance Group for students to work outside course hours (perhaps over school holidays) on new performance projects where they can get to try out their new found skills.
