Advanced students can audition to join the Young Performers Company, where they will work with a group of highly motivated young actors, preparing devised and classical/contemporary scripts for performance, under the guidance of an experienced tutor/director. Each term culminates in a scripted performance. This course is suited to students who are experienced in drama and who wish to apply the skills they have developed through focused performance work. All students are asked to come to class prepared and to offer a full commitment to the 10 week term.
