Stage Combat

Discarded Nut Theatre Company Presents…

An exciting insight into stage combat both as a practical performance skill and as an integral part of the story telling process. A fight can keep the action moving and act as a catalyst for major character development. It can also act as a climax, tying together the themes, events and characters in a dramatic conclusion. 

You’ll learn basic combat techniques and how to portray fights effectively, dramatically and, most importantly, safely!  You will also stage your own fights based around well-known scenes from stage and screen. If you love performing, this is a fantastic opportunity to learn some unique new skills that will make your acting CV stand out from crowd.


  • Wednesday evenings from 7 - 9pm.


  • Membership for the company is through online application (see link below) - all abilities and levels welcome.

  • We take a full company of 20 participants.

Please note that membership (£100 per term) is due on the first rehearsal (either through pre-dated cheques, cash/card payment in full or organised direct debit) and is non-refundable.
