Acting Course for Age 60+

Our 60+ Acting Course offers practical performance workshops for theatre enthusiasts who would like to explore performance skills and techniques whilst having great fun.

Previous terms have included one-off workshops with professional theatre directors such as Joe Douglas (The Arabian Nights, The Cheviot, The Stag & The Black, Black Oil) and actors such as Grant O’Rourke (The Belle’s Stratagem, Outlander). In May 2019, the 60+ groups performed as The Lyceum Original Sixty company in a devised piece titled Harbour, inspired by David Greig’s adaptation of Local Hero. This premiered at the Traverse Theatre as part of the Luminate Festival.

We welcome people of all skill levels, abilities and experience. New members are always welcome. If you have any questions then please email
