"The focus on the acting process and the development of students' individual style creates robust, industry-ready performers."


"One of our biggest passions is developing and inspiring new 'Theatre Makers' , those young people who have a drive to create - and be involved in the creation of - new, original works. Unfortunately, these opportunities are not widely available on a larger-scale, hence why we have developed The Creation Lab. It's a yearly project which sees a small group of First Act students work closely with a coach and other industry professionals to conceptualise, devise, design, direct and ultimately perform their own piece of theatre. This opportunity is unlike anything else offered in other youth acting schools, and to date our Creation Lab alumni have been inspired to pursue theatre technology, writing and directing as full-time careers in the arts."
