LEATSS is a collaborative, project-based, week-long, residential summer school for actors, directors and music theatre singers as well as – less regularly – writers/devisors. It is particularly suited to amateur enthusiasts (and those who may be a little hesitant) who wish to develop and improve their practical skills, knowledge, understanding and capabilities.
Our aim is to enrich, nourish and nurture. To do this we provide expert professional tuition within a friendly and fully supportive environment. All tutors have a wide and impressive track record as professional theatre practitioners and teachers and our tutor-to-participant ratio is high. With 4 tutors and 40 to 50 participants, we generally have one tutor to 10 or so participants.
The work is creative and inspiring, the pace impressive but rewarding, the atmosphere friendly and supportive. Because the emphasis is on process and not product (how can we do it, not how well do we perform), we can encompass a wide range of age, experience and skill.
