Get in on the Act



We're guessing you've tried every acting class in Glasgow and beyond. Or you’ve always wanted to give acting a real go, but life or a lack of confidence got in the way.

Maybe you were afraid to try it because of what people might say, or in case you discovered you were no good at it. You think you’re too old. You think you don’t have enough experience.

You just want to try it out, it’s been a lifelong desire that just never happened - and now you’re regretting it. You’re thinking about it as a career, or perhaps as a hobby for your precious spare time.

  • Anyone can explore acting at Acting Coach Scotland, because our classes are tailored directly to each student’s needs.

Or you could keep dreaming and put it off for another few years.

  • Give us 8 weeks and you'll be hooked on Acting for life.

"Mark’s classes are relaxed and very enjoyable. The small number of people in each class ensures everyone gets personal attention and Mark’s patience and obvious passion for the technique make each class an exciting and inspirational experience.  I am feeling more inspired and excited about my craft than I have in a long time." KARLI EVANS

From Beginner to Oscar Winner

Acting Coach Scotland (ACS) was founded in 2008 by Mark Westbrook, a theatre director, writer and acting coach who trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Atlantic Theatre Company's Acting School in New York. Mark is an award winning director and film producer. 

In 2015, Mark was joined by Nick J Field (picture right), a graduate of East 15 Acting School, an experienced actor and producer, who left the National Theatre of Scotland to help develop ACS into the successful studio it is today. Nick is an award winning theatre and film producer. 

Mark and Nick work hard to make the Studio a place where anyone can come and learn the skills of acting. They make no promises about success, but they will support you in your dreams, offering advice, mentoring, actor training and experience. 

Nick and Mark aren't here for the money.
