City Academy Actors Company

City Academy Actors Company

Our Actors Company is our premier ongoing theatre company. If you have attended acting classes and are confident taking to the stage you are encouraged to audition to join us.

This Spring 2024 we will be performing 'King Lear' by William Shakespeare:

Join Theatre Director Mark Prince, in a intimate production of a Shakespeare classic, King Lear. Perhaps Shakespeare's greatest tragedy, King Lear is the story of an aging king, who, after failing to get the show of devotion he expects from his three daughters, divides his kingdom, destroys his family, and banishes those closest to him leaving his kingdom in ruins.

With weekly rehearsals and regular performances throughout the year, The Actors Company is one of the most exciting contemporary groups in London. It enables you to participate in theatre productions that fit around your working life. Join a passionate cast, delve into text and craft your acting skills as you rehearse your way to live performances for friends, family and the wider public on a London stage. Ticket prices are subsidised by City Academy and company members are encouraged to help spread the word by inviting friends, family and industry professionals.

How Does it Work?

The Actors Company perform in three Theatre Productions a year, with each production offering three performances. Joining the company involves:

  • Weekly Saturday rehearsals for 7 weeks
  • Final full day tech rehearsal
  • Two live shows in a theatre
  • Chance to perform to a paying audience

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.
