Send application

The Musical Theatre line at Sunnfjord Folkehøgskule will give you opportunity to develop in a professional environment and build a foundation for further training in the theatre or musikal fields.

Sunnfjord Folkehøgskole offers the only musical theatre program in Norway in which the acting classes are based on Meisner Technique, a famous American method of actor training. Meisner Technique develops honesty, bravery, and detailed observation in performance. Our focus on individual development means that previous experience is not as important as a desire to work hard and challenge yourself. We will be working with classical and modern texts from around the world. In addition to acting, students will learn vocal technique, text interpretation, stage combat, physical theatre and how actors can manage themselves as a business. Students will gain experience working on traditional stages and in site specific locations out in nature or in the city. Students will finish their year with a thorough understanding of acting and theatre, experience performing in a wide variety of genres, an increased ability of creative expression and a CV and showreel which will help them after they leave the school. In short, they will have an ideal foundation from which to continue their training or careers.

Students will benefit from masterclasses from visiting actors and directors from within Norway as well as from England and America.
