ACTING FOR TELEVISION, FILM & THEATRE
Our teaching is at the cutting edge of what is happening in the television, film
and theatre industry today. We aim to equip both children and adults with
the necessary skills and techniques required for performance whether for
television and film or theatre (including musical theatre).
Acting techniques taught by PSC are grounded in Stanislavsky, Sanford
Meisner, Lee Strasberg and Michael Chekov, while teaching contemporary and
modern television and film acting derived from leading industry professionals
including ITV and BBC directors and world renowned acting coaches: Mel
Churcher (Daniel Craig, Angelina Jolie and Jude Law) and Jeremiah Comey
(Billy Zane, Johnny Knoxville and Kayla Ewell).
Children’s classes contain a musical theatre element which includes both dance
and vocal coaching, along with character development, improvisation and the
embodiment of character.
Parker and Snell Company believes that a strong grounding in acting and
acting techniques, alongside the discipline of song and dance, serves to create
a rounded and versatile performer, from realism acting (which is required for
the camera), to physical characterization (required for theatre).
Students who have enrolled on our acting for television, film and theatre
courses will have the opportunity to meet industry professionals including
actors from Coronation Street, Downton Abbey, Shameless, Waterloo Road, ITV/BBC
drama, casting directors from the BBC and ITV, professional film and theatre
directors.
TUTORS
All of our tutors have either trained (formerly IOM Acting Academy) or worked
with PSC extensively.
Visiting professionals include (former IOM Acting Academy) June West (ITV
casting director), Mel Churcher (A list acting coach), Kieran Griffiths (Shameless,
The Street), Simon Powell (independent film director), William Ash (Waterloo
Road, Hush), Michelle Holmes (Rita, Sue & Bob Too, Coronation Street, Above
Suspicion) Peter Hunt (acting coach ALRA) and Matthew Bannister (RADA tutor
and actor).
ADULT CLASS
Our adult class for ages 18 and over covers television, film and theatre acting,
with techniques taught ranging from Stanislavsky to Michael Chekhov,
including unique and exclusive techniques taught by class tutor Carl Parker.
We aim to develop a rounded and individual performer with transferable skills
from stage to screen.
Our primary focus is grounded in realism acting which is required for
television and film, while exploring physical characterisation and voice work
for the purpose of theatre.
Places are strictly limited.

CHILDREN’S CLASSES
Our children’s classes aim to develop a fully grounded and versatile performer,
equipping children with the skills required for performance on both stage and
screen.
A focus on developing a child’s instinct and intuition, while teaching the
discipline required for theatre and television performance, is paramount to
PSC teaching. We aim to instil a confidence and esteem which will not only
enhance a child’s performance skills but will also enhance their social and
personal interaction skills.
Our classes will incorporate a musical theatre element where the discipline of
both song and dance will feature during the course of each term.
Acting for screen will also feature as part of the course, enabling children to
understand the basic elements required when filming for either television or film.
Casting directors are far more likely to favour children with a foundation in
screen acting when it comes to casting for television dramas or feature films.
Places are strictly limited.
*Classes are held at the Villa Marina Arcade, Harris Promenade, Douglas, IM1 2HJ
and the Town Hall, Port St Mary, IM9 5DA.
