Situated on the boundary between Brighton, Hove and Preston Park, this is our founding branch and typifies our culture of a strong, supportive and welcoming acting group.

Ross Drury heads up the juniors on a Saturday and seniors on a Monday and Friday.

“Scarlet and Seb have really enjoyed it and feel safe and comfortable. They have felt part of the group and have been really engaged with what they have been doing. I can see that it is teaching them to observe and express emotional states – developing their emotional intelligence.”

BHASVIC Theatre, Brighton

  • Location BHASVIC Theatre, 205 Dyke Rd, Brighton and Hove, Hove, East Sussex BN3 6EG
  • Ages 16 - 19
  • Branch director Ross Drury / Eva Savage

Winner of ‘Best Young Production’ for their Brighton Fringe show, Sparkleshark, this is one of the most talented groups in Brighton. Every new member is easily integrated into what is a wonderful welcoming community of young actors.

On Sparkleshark – “I’ve done many shows before and yet they’ve always been less organised and more stressful. I’ve never enjoyed preparing for and performing in a performance more. I never once came back stressing over what we still had to do or what I had to learn. The whole process was enjoyable and an environment was created where we all felt safe to explore characters and take risks. I love the young actors group and couldn’t speak more highly of it!” Maddy.
