The vision of the group is to equip young actors with the confidence and character
to succeed in the acting business and beyond. founder, Ben Murray-Watson
"We have a unique curriculum looking at all aspects of acting, from film and stage acting to writing and improvisation.

"The acting world is full of complexities and we want to make sure parents feel supported at every stage of their child"s development as an actor."
The Young Actors Group is backed by actress, Dakota Blue Richards, who at the age of 11 won the role of Lyra in The Golden Compass.

"I'm so proud to be part of this group that will offer young people the opportunity to learn and prepare for the world of professional acting."

on August 17th and 23rd
with a view to starting classes in September 2014.
A term costs £172.00 and The Young Actors Group are looking to enter into partnerships with local businesses to support parents who can"t afford the full fees.
