Our learning and participation wing, The Bridge Theatre Workshops opened its doors to the community in August 2021. We believe in the importance of active engagement in the performing arts for all due to the skills it teaches, the confidence it builds and the sense of community it engenders.
Taking place every Sundays 4pm, from 16 January 2023.
9 three-hour masterclasses in different aspects of acting, from using your voice to working with camera. Take a tour of acting techniques, led by an eclectic cohort of Brussels' finest theatre practitioners.
Taking place every Sundays 11am, starting 16 January 2023 (10 weeks).
Our Musical Theatre Workshops are for people who want to get singing, acting and dancing in a non-judgemental setting. Our workshop leaders enable everyone to feel comfortable. We welcome people with little or no prior experience in musical theatre.
Our week-long summer workshop in August 2021 offered coaching in acting, singing and dancing to young people aged 10-18. The week was taught by industry professionals and included special workshops on performing techniques, ending with a performance for parents and friends.
The Bridge Theatre provided three scholarships for this workshop, widening access to those who could not otherwise afford to take part.

From September 2021, The Bridge Theatre Workshops began weekly rehearsals for people of all ages, from 10 and above, for our November show – All Together Now! For more over 9 weekends, cast members were immersed in acting, singing and dancing.
The workshop culminated in a show at the Vaudeville Theatre in central Brussels.
We plan to make our Weekend Workshops a permanent fixture in Brussels. The first term ran for 10 weeks.
Everyone participating got expert tuition in acting, singing and dancing. They did not work towards a performance as such but they ended the term with a showcase for friends and family.
