Hackney Showroom Young Actors 2020-21

Auditions 11 & 12 December | FREE

Applications have now closed.

Hackney Showroom Young Actors is a free, high level skills-based training programme for 18-25 year olds from Hackney, Haringey & Islington who are serious about a career in acting. The 2 term course runs on Tuesday evenings from 7-9.30pm at Hackney Showroom, 4 Murrain Road, Kings Crescent Estate, N4 2BN.

Over the course of the programme you will work with leading industry professionals covering a syllabus similar to that of drama school, developing a range of techniques such as: interpreting and analysing text including Shakespeare, classic and contemporary drama; vocal work; movement; improvisation; clowning; and audition practice.

This is a great opportunity for young people who – for whatever reason – may be unable to attend drama school, or as a foundation to enable entry into drama school in 2021 or straight into work.

You’ll need to prepare a 2 minute speech and you’ll be contacted by 10 December with your audition slot and full details of the audition. We’re aiming to meet everyone but if we’re oversubscribed, priority will be given to Hackney residents.

Hackney Showroom is wheelchair accessible. If you have any access needs, please let us know on the form.

Hackney Showroom Young Actors is supported by the Mayor of London’s Young Londoners Fund.
