The Young Actors Group

The Young Actors Group is a professionally run, award winning (Best Young Production, Brighton Fringe 2016) acting school and agency that runs weekly drama classes for 5 – 19 year olds in Brighton and the South East.

We aim to provide the very best bespoke acting training, the most constructive support base for parents and to be the go-to platform for professional casting directors auditioning for young talent.

Our unique 3 term curriculum is designed to build a challenging, expectant atmosphere amidst a fun, safe and hugely supportive environment – with numbers capped at 16 per class.

Whether you’re a new or experienced young actor, we’ll equip you with essential skills and help you gain the confidence, integrity and character to flourish in and out of the acting world.
