About the course

Designed primarily for students with previous experience and/or training, the MA Acting - Classical masters programme at Central is a creatively, physically and intellectually demanding, advanced level, conservatoire acting programme specialising in Classical plays.

  • Perform in two fully-realised public productions and an industry showcase 
  • Hone the individual technical craft of the actor, and release your collaborative and imaginative creativity within a small ensemble company (typically 14-16 students)
  • Take part in practical group classes in acting, movement and voice, undertaking separate stage combat training

The Classical course follows the development of the theatrical art from its earliest ritual roots to the birth of naturalism:

Student Profile(s)

Riz Ahmed, Graduated 2006, appeared in Nightcrawler, Jason Bourne and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Central guided me from a place of blind enthusiasm to one of diligent craft, providing me with the solid foundations I needed over the coming years. My course leaders showed such belief and patience towards us, and built such trust, that I ultimately followed them into this unknown territory. I grew more in that one year than I could have ever imagined.
