Manchester Acting Classes for Adults

We offer fun and practical acting classes in Manchester for Adults. Our weekly drama classes allow Manchester Actors of all levels a place to grow and develop their acting skills in a fun and professionally focused environment. MHD Acting School has always been a safe and welcoming space, and we particularly welcome Complete Beginners, Mature Students and International Students.

Our Adults Acting Classes will:

  • help building confidence
  • keep you audition ready
  • introducing you to new acting techniques

As the training brother of the New Live Theatre Company we have offered many opportunities to our students, including showcases to industry professionals and performances at venues such as The Lowry, Z-Arts Theatre and regional tours. We do not represent our students, however we do filter and pass on paid castings and opportunities when they come in to suitable students.

Our Acting Classes are suitable for Complete Beginners to Advanced Professional Actors aged 18-116. We particularly welcome international students, mature actors and absolute beginners, with a great track record for improvement.

Our Acting Classes cover acting for Theatre, TV & Film and from 2022 our Voice Acting short course covers acting for Radio and Voice Over (this is not a singing course). In these classes you will be given a solid training ground to help you see your full potential. We strive to improve every Actors ability. Our approach is very fun, but intense and strict for the more advanced actors.

Acting Classes Cover (depending on ability level): Giving a Truthful Performance, Character Development, Script Analysis, Script Work (monologues & duologues), Drama and Acting Exercises, Audition & Rehearsal Technique, Improvisation, Mock Auditions, Self Taping, Actor Marketing & Attitude for Acting: how to sell yourself, The Business of Acting, Acting Styles, and more…

100% attendance is vital in this busy industry and dedication must be proven to afford additional opportunities in which trust is placed in you.

You do not need experience to start your career with us, just a passion to Act!
