The nationally recognised HNC Acting and Performance is aimed at those with experience and/or genuine interest in acting and performance. It will allow you to develop your skills in voice, movement, acting and stage craft.

Taking part in performances in the Inverness College UHI Studio and Theatre as well as in the community, you will work co-operatively in teams experiencing opportunities for leadership, and take part in innovative and creative approaches to work in rehearsal and performance.

Please note: At Moray College UHI the course is delivered in collaboration with Out of the Darkness Theatre Company. All practical work will be undertaken at their premises, but you will register and have access to all facilities and have support from Moray College UHI.
