Fourth Monkey's Young Actors Company - Launching September 2022!

Fourth Monkey in Drama & Theatre

Have you heard? We have launched a new Young Actors Company initiative in London and in Bristol, offering an exciting new approach to acting for stage and screen and creative theatre making for young people aged 14 years and over!

Open to all, regardless of background or experience, the launch of our Young Actors Company in London and Bristol is the next step in our long-term goal as a drama school and arts organisation of increasing access and opportunity in the arts for all young people, and classes kick off in September 2022 at our dedicated Centre of Excellences, The Monkey House in Islington, North London, and The Bamboo House, Bristol.

We are incredibly excited about this new youth training initiative and the opportunities it offers young people from the local communities close to our training centres and beyond, and we were delighted to see our launch announcement featured in the May 2022 issue of Drama & Theatre, the magazine for teachers and educators, as well as in the June 2022 issue of Ink Pellet, to help us spread the word and welcome the next generation of young performers, artists and makers through our doors to start their creative training journey this Autumn!

Commenting on the launch of the Young Actors Company and the ethos behind this new initiative, Fourth Monkey’s Artistic Director, Steve Green, said: “As a Drama School, we are dedicated to changing the face of the industry, by offering truly inclusive and innovative opportunities for young people, engendering a genuine sense of accessibility to the arts for all. Fourth Monkey’s philosophy is one founded on the celebration of the individual and we are thrilled to be able to expand our creative offer in Bristol and London to include our new Young Actors Company.”

The Young Actors Company combines weekly Saturday workshops with monthly masterclasses in a wide variety of artist-led acting and creative theatre making disciplines, including acting for camera, self-tape and audition technique masterclasses, devised film and theatre performance projects and everything in-between.

A number of free and subsidised places are available to ensure these opportunities are open to all, and registrations for Autumn 2022 are open now for anyone keen to come and Act. Make. Move. Collaborate, Fourth Monkey-style!
