"I still have to pinch myself that my new actor coach and mentor is the mighty Jim Cartwright. Since going to these classes with Jim, it has reignited that fire in my belly for this weird and wonderful performer game we play. Jim has such an incredible imagination and has stripped acting right back to the basics; the basic stuff we did many moons ago but have either lost the spark for, or become lazy over the years and skipped those instincts and skills. Such a wonderful, motivated environment to study, along with lovely people. Thanks Jim, for giving us all hope, focus, and for helping me re-discover the actor talent that I felt was starting to fade, around a busy real life!" J. H. ....Manchester

Jim Cartwright's workshops are amazing! Warm and welcoming, innovative, inspiring and an oasis of the imagination! Everyone is encouraged to develop their creativity through exploration of performance and the crafting of their ideas into words, in a collaborative environment, in which to be included is a joy and a blessing! The scope of all the elements and techniques covered - theatre and film- voice, mime, improvisation (the list is considerable ....) is comprehensive and confidence enhancing to players at all stages of their careers. To be stimulated and nurtured by a gifted man of such calibre- not just in writing (which is internationally renown) but in his understanding of many aspects of the industry, is incredible- not least because this all occurs in such friendly, heart-warming, supportive surroundings, which Jim naturally fosters. Quality is pursued and success results! I have to keep pinching myself that I'm on board with such an accomplished captain and his thoroughly trusty 'warrior' crew.
Thank you Jim you're an inspiration and thank you Angela for your initial encouragement too! D. L. ...Chorley
