Course: 2 yr. Acting, 2010
I did have a great time at the Bridge, and it didn't cost me the Earth. I met a lot of people, all ages all walks of life. The Bridge installs in you that you are a professional actor from the moment you start. There is emphasis that the course is not about ticking boxes, you are aware of your own development and tutorials are there to discuss that with your tutors, but in class you just do. I greatly improved in my time there, and understand the tools that any actor needs. Like most things if you put the time in you will get out of it what you intend.
Mark Middleton
Course: Post Graduate Acting, 2010
I have thouroughly enjoyed - and benefitted from my time at The Bridge Theatre Training Company. I have recently graduated from the One Year Post-Graduate Diploma in Professional Acting and can honestly say that I am a far better Actor after just one year of high quality training and personal input from the staff at the Bridge Theatre Company. The style of teaching is very personal and tailored as much as it can be for the individual, with small classes (14 in my year) and plenty of one-on-one tutor sessions available to strengthen areas that you are struggling with. Other tutors from inside the industry work regularly at the Bridge - giving good insight into what real life as a jobbing actor is like, and providing firm teaching in areas such as Meisner, Handling Text, Voice, Movement among many others. I was hesitant to apply to the Bridge - as I had not heard of them before, and was anxious at the fact that they were not accredited. However, I attended the audition day/workshop and was so impressed by the standard of teaching - specifically from Mark Akrill, one of the principal members of staff, that I accepted the place as soon as it was offered. My main thoughts behind accepting were these: "If this is what he (Mark) can get out of me in 20 minutes, imagine what I'll be like after a year of input of this calibre." I have not been disappointed. I would whole-heartedly recommend the Bridge Theatre Training Company to any aspiring actor, no matter your age, experience or nationality. They excel in helping you to be the best YOU that you can be.

Course: Post Graduate Acting, 2010
The Bridge Theatre Training Company is exactly that. A company. I left with a real sense of belonging and knowing you have their support and advice even after you graduate is such a positive feeling. The Course was exactly what I needed. The audition day was so different to any other. You felt like an individual and the energy and passion that went in to it was fantastic. This carried on throughout the length of the course. You get out what you put in and if you are dedicated, passionate and hard working then this is the place for you as you will get so much out of it. The passion and dedication from The Bridge is priceless.

The Bridge was and is everything I wanted from a Drama School. They're Teaching is second to none and at a Low cost. They are also supportive to their actors, helping them through personal issues or in my case, holding a place on the course for me when I fell ill and had to leave for a year. Now I'm graduated can pop back for help in preparing for auditions. I've gain great training and great friends from my time there. You cannot find a better place to train!

I regard this course as a significant moment in my life. I had the best time of my life and learned so much about this industry and how committed you need to be. It gave me the tools to go into any audition or performance with confidence and showed me how to adapt to the play that i am going for staying flexible to the clients expectations. I have a huge understanding of text now and thats all down to MARK AKRIL, JUDITH POLLARD AND TONY LAW. Fantastic school and it keeps improving. I have been working consistently in the industry since graduating. Big THANK YOU TO THE BRIDGE THEATRE TRAINING COMPANY.

Course: 2 yr. Acting, 1998
I really enjoyed my time at the bridge. The audition day was great and I met some wonderful people. The tutors are really skilled and I got my advanced stage combat out of my time there. They didnt have great facilities when I was there but now they are in Camden and it is a much better set up. I would recommend The Bridge to any student its value for money and just as good as the more expensive schools. Tammy Wakefield
