Young Actors - Seniors

Stage Two | Class



 

We are no longer accepting applications or new members on this course. Please keep an eye on our website for information on applications for 2020-2021

Our Young Actors course offers specialised training with the region’s largest professional working theatre. Our tailor-made, age appropriate syllabus is written and delivered by industry professionals, and includes vocal work, devising, text, ensemble, physicality and character work.

We have close relationships with major national companies including the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Where appropriate, this enables us to access additional high quality training opportunities for our members during the year.

The course has a strong grounding in theatre discipline and we expect our members to have a high level of commitment to their learning, rehearsals and to each other.

Performance Opportunities

We believe that quality training and experience is crucial for those wishing to enter the industry. This is why both within and alongside our courses there are always performance opportunities. Collaborating across all art forms and being aware of the different roles involved in producing productions is fundamental to our young people’s knowledge when entering the industry today.

We are lucky to have three very different stages to work with. Stage Two with its 120 seat versatile auditorium, the beautiful Playhouse seating 300 and our main house which seats 1300.
