Liverpool Adult Acting Classes

ActUpNorth Liverpool was the second of our academies to open in 2009, offering a new and modern approach to actor training. Our aim was simple. To inspire and nurture talent by providing a local, affordable outlet where determined and committed adults come together and learn the skill of acting in a safe, secure and professional environment.

Since 2009 we haven’t looked back. We’ve revolutionised the tired method of actor training and are now the first port of call for those looking for Adult Acting Classes in Liverpool, Merseyside and the North West. Students travel from as far as Wales to attend our weekly classes in Liverpool.

All of our students follow a carefully devised training programme where they are regularly observed and have the chance to work with industry professionals including Casting Directors, Agents, Producers and Directors.

Workshops will cover a range of mediums and techniques with a focus on acting for screen. Most sessions will involve working on TV scripts from current or recent TV productions. In addition, students will get to work on screen using our HD Cameras and view their work back. We feel this is a useful tool and helps the student identify areas for future improvement.

Each term is made up of 12-16 weeks and is further broken down into 3 modules, each module lasting around 4 weeks. Therefore it may be possible to join the programme at various times throughout the year.
