MASTERCLASS

Each month, we run an amazing programme of workshops, designed to help aspiring performers develop and hone all of the skills needed to perform in pantomime. You can sign up to these workshops for just £9 per session, or you can book 12 sessions for just £90. (a saving of £18) We email out the information about forthcoming workshops, which you can attend as many or as few as you wish. 

If you have an area of Pantomime you are specifically interested in, then you can book a 1-2-1 mentoring session with a tutor to aid your personal development in that area. This may be comedy, script writing, character development, or any of the other subjects that British Pantomime Academy covers. 1-2-1 mentoring costs just £15 per hour and is a fantastic opportunity to be guided by panto professionals to help enhance your skills. 

We offer a great range of one-off Masterclasses in a whole range of subjects, such as circus skills, costume characters, Ventriloquism, cartooning and much more. The Masterclasses are run by tutors who are experts in their respective fields, and are only £15 for a 60 minute session. Make sure you are signed up to our email mailing list to get details of all of our great Masterclasses.

WARWICK DAVIS

Pantomime is a traditional English theatrical art form that is unique to the UK. It is often a youngster's first introduction to the world of theatre as an audience member. It will shape how they view theatre for the rest of their lives, Such is it's importance, that I feel workshops like the one that the 'British Pantomime Academy' provide are essential to keep this tradition alive and introduce new fresh talent to the industry.

For some children, Pantomime is their first real taste of live theatre. Starting this Easter 'BPA' are producing one the most popular Christmas titles of ALADDIN.
