Our group for the over 55s meets on a Monday afternoon here at the Rose.  Everyone is welcome to join – no acting experience is required and there’ll be no line learning! For more information, please email


Cost: £225. Classes: Monday evenings 7pm-9.30pm. 

Rose Players is our introductory acting group open for anyone aged over 18. We welcome actors of all ages and experience to take part in classes that focus on professional-process and technique.

Perhaps you’ve never acted before, or perhaps you are returning to it. All you need is enthusiasm and to be able to commit to the classes over the course of the term. We explore major practitioners, methods of working on different styles of text, improvisation and vocal techniques that are applicable to many different areas of life.

The course is directed by Anthony Hoskyns, an actor and director who is currently working toward his MFA in Directing at Birkbeck University London. Anthony has worked professionally as an actor for 8 years having graduated with a BA in Acting from Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He has been directing for us at the Rose for 5 years. When appropriate, guest directors may also work with you on specialist skills and there will be an informal showing of your work at the end of term.

Whether you are thinking about professional training or you're an enthusiastic amateur, this is a great way to spend your Monday evenings.
