"To Lift or not to Lift"

Going to the gym is like going to a rehearsal, we train, keep fit and achieve our goals!
But what happens when we are aren't in a rehearsal room?

The Actors' Gym is a new version of the treadmill for North East Actors who want to take risks and develop their skills in a supportive environment. It involves weekly workshops on specific plays and skills such as self-tapes, audition technique and rehearsal methods with individual and group work at the Alphabetti Theatre.

The Gym is designed to suit the needs of all disciplines and the actors' need for consistency to try new things, and improve their craft and stamina.

The only cores we are concerned with are our core values: Community, Imagination, and Courage. The Actors' Gym is open to any actor in the North East who has acting experience from a University/ Drama School/ College, or a Youth Theatre.

*Please note £5 individual workshop tickets can only be purchased on the day at the Box Office, and full series tickets can only be purchased online before Wednesday 1st May.

Alphabetti Theatre

Alphabetti Theatre is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and was created by Ali Pritchard in 2012. We create, produce, and programme new, original work from emerging artists across the performing arts, championing work in Music, Theatre, Comedy and Poetry. We strive to make theatre that is relatable and accessible to all, and are constantly looking for new ways to challenge ourselves, physically, mentally and conceptually – we believe that by challenging ourselves we inevitably challenge the audience, creating engaging and original experiences.
