Artistic Policy

It is usual that plays are written with leading roles and smaller parts, however, to ensure that each member of the Company has an equal opportunity to perform, experience proves that rehearsing and performing ‘scenes’ rather than complete plays is the most effective policy. 

The Studio Productions therefore consist of scenes and pieces linked to form an engaging show with all actors fully participating. The scenes, chosen to suit the individual actors’ casting, are usually contemporary and requiring minimal set and costume. Our studio is modern and lends itself to intimate performances.

Company Director

The City Academy Actors Showcase company is led by award-winning actor and director Simon Wegrzyn

Simon’s performance credits span BBC drama and productions with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Simon loves teaching and watching his students make a breakthrough – seeing a performance transform into something that feels real and believable. His focus is on bringing a group together and creating an environment that is safe and daring.

City Academy Actors Showcase Company tutors

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
