Viva La Commedia Summer School
Taught by Geoff Beale (Ophaboom) and Didi Hopkins (One Man, Two Guvnors), Viva La Commedia is two weeks of midsummer madness and spirited performance for actors of all ages.

To see more about how we work go to NTdiscovertheatre and look for the five films on commedia.
