The Young Company Actors is a holistic actor training programme for youths between 16 – 25 and will equip you with the skills and techniques you need to shine onstage as well as in your future career of choice.

Designed by theatre veteran Daniel Jenkins, the highly practical programme is executed through a series of modules taking place over 2 semesters of 16 weeks each. Each class will take place on a Saturday and will run for 3 hours. At the end of Year 1, there will be an option to participate in the second year graduation company.

Modules will feature guest practitioners who specialise in fields such as Improvisation, Voice Acting, Devising and Physical Theatre, Musical Theatre, Shakespeare and the Stanislavsky System. You will also receive expert audition and resume advice that will prepare you to face a variety of auditions and interviews in the future.

At the end of the graduation year, you will perform at a fully staged professional production under the direction of a professional creative team.

As part of the SRT family, you can enjoy exclusive benefits such as the opportunity to meet and work with international directors and theatre companies, you will be prioritised for auditions during SRT’s casting calls for its productions, and have complimentary access to SRT’s productions during the programme.

“Although I may not pursue a career in acting, my time with The Young Company has given me experience working in professional environments with people who are deeply committed to their work. This has given me a sense of the skills I will need in future as well as what I will be looking for in my future career.”

— Celine Ng, Class of 2016

“Everything at Julius Caesar (2018) was an eye-opener. It is my first ever professional production. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by professional actors, see how they prepare themselves and do their homework for the roles. I’m amazed by how the actors rework the scene again and again when it gets old and repetitive, how they strive to find new meaning in the scene and recreate their art. It was truly inspiring to see veterans dedicated to their art.”

— Marius Wong, Class of 2019

“Being involved in Julius Caesar (2018) has opened my eyes to how much work goes into what you see onstage. It’s been such an incredible opportunity to learn from everyone, to see how a professional production is run and to work with a director like Guy Unsworth.”

— Kiara Nicole Pillai, Class of 2019
