TYC Actors is a highly practical actors training programme executed through a series of modules taking place over a total of 4 semesters. Modules can include workshops exploring practitioners such as Stanislavsky, playwrights such as Shakespeare and skills-based development across script work, devising, improvisation, character development and theatre production. In addition, participants will also work towards performance showcases, support SRT’s Young Writers and will conclude the 2-year programme with a final Graduation performance on stage at KC Arts Centre – Home of SRT.
Along the way the participants will be immersed in SRT’s theatre programmes such as attending performances, meeting creative teams and making connections in the industry. In the past, participants have connected with creatives from major US and UK tours as well as taking part in masterclass workshops in choreography, musical theatre and acting with heavy weights such as Kit Chan, Ethan Hawke and Sir Ian McKellen.
