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 Theatre 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 cast, are usually contemporary and require minimal set and costume.

We aim to use new writing, devising, one act plays and cutting edge scripts that offer all members of the cast a real acting challenge.

To make membership fees more manageable, these breaks are accounted for within your monthly instalments across the year. This means there are no breaks in your monthly payments.

City Academy Debut Theatre 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.
