Apprentice Actor – Actor’s Toolkit with Iain Sinclair

“When you hit a wall – of your own imagined limitations – just kick it in.” – Sam Shepard

This 3-day Intensive is specially designed for actors ready and willing to learn deeply, grow and evolve as an Apprentice in the craft of acting.

Train as an actor this April with award-winning theatre director and, 16th Street’s Head of Acting, Iain Sinclair.


“Whether you’re just starting out or looking to build upon existing experience, this course will help you develop some of the most useful fundamental acting skills you can learn. The three days with Iain Sinclair were at once challenging and nurturing. Iain makes you feel incredibly at ease and is so wonderfully generous with his knowledge. The insight, tools and advice that he shared with us exceeded all my expectations and I’ve come away from this course with a vast range of practical new skills and experience, feeling encouraged and emboldened.”

Kris Shrimpton (The Apprentice Actor, January 2019)

The focus of this intensive will be on exploring the ancient technical acting requirements of language, action and intention with the modern expectations of performance on the stage and screen.

Discover what it means to be intentional and present on stage over three exciting days where you will walk away inspired, unlocked and challenged.

If you’ve always wanted to take an acting class, or dreamed of stepping fully into your creative potential then take the leap and apply today!

“Iain is a fiercely intelligent, generous and articulate teacher. His ability to shift from director to teacher gives actors a unique opportunity to learn new skills, then flex them under his astute direction. I love working with Iain.”
