Young Actors Company

We’ve launched our first ever Young Actors Company. The company is designed for 18-24 year olds, who are looking to develop their skills and experience and includes the opportunity to perform right here in the historic Palace this summer.

The project offers participants the chance to work closely with fellow actors, established professionals and get a close-up look at the productions appearing in the Palace’s award-winning Victorian Theatre

The Company is free to join and applications are now open. Aspiring participants are asked to send in an audition video by Monday, 11 April. All the information you need is on our Young Actors Company page
