CREATE

One of our principle aims when founding Cyphers was to make the world of professional theatre as accessible as possible. This includes providing affordable training opportunities and alternative routes into the profession. As such, we have developed a series of workshops to support students, allowing them to develop core theatre skills alongside their academic studies. Building on our own experience of transitioning from student to professional theatre, our courses and workshops provide students with an introduction to conservatoire style training that allow you to enter the professional world with confidence.
