The programme is designed by theatre veteran Daniel Jenkins, and features guest teachers who specialise in fields such as Improvisation, Voice Acting, Devising, Physical Theatre, Musical Theatre and the Stanislavsky System. It is an annual actor training programme over 2 semesters. After a year of training, progression routes are available to join the programme for a second year, depending on student conduct and availability. Each year participants will work towards semester showcases, and in their second year, will have an opportunity to perform on stage at KC Arts Centre – Home of SRT. Company members will receive mentorship by established theatre practitioners, learn audition techniques and develop a range of monologues to use in different audition situations. Throughout the year there are opportunities to attend masterclasses and workshops by local and international practitioners at no extra cost, and complimentary tickets to SRT’s productions.
“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
