About Us

We have been teaching and training children and young people in the arts for over 40 years.

Although our Young Actors will develop a wide range of skills throughout their time with us, our primary focus is and has always been pure acting on stage, screen and radio.  This is why we only employ professionally trained, highly skilled and experienced actors and directors to work with anyone who joins us.

The company started over 40 years ago at the Cambridge Arts Theatre as the Cambridge Young Theatre Group and since then has developed to become a company, that we believe, is one of a kind. We have:

  • 5 branches

  • over 20 weekly classes 

  • over 16 different theatrical events every year, involving over 400 students

  • access to some of the best TV/film and theatre castings 

  • and a serious love for training young people in the arts!

All children and young people who successfully audition to join us will automatically be given FREE membership to The Young Actors Company Casting Agency and will also be given the opportunity to join Spotlight Casting Directory, take LAMDA Examinations, and to audition for projects such as the Summer Film Projects, National Theatre Connections and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to name but a few!

The Young Actors Company is a preferred supplier for supporting artists and agencies to the BBC.
