Rep Company (17-25s)
A year-long programme designed for young actors to play, train and perform. Run by Olivier Nominated Director & Acting Coach, Toby Clarke, the Company will undergo 3 months of training in Naturalism, Improvisation and more. The cohort will work towards presenting their original work on TP’s main stage as well as devising a new piece designed to tour schools, youth centres, PRUs and other educational institutions based around the themes of one of Theatre Peckham’s produced in-house productions. The Programme will culminate with company members receiving their own professional showreel material and headshot.
Throughout the year, there will be Professional Industry Showcase opportunities as well as Guest Practitioners invited in to run specialised Masterclasses from some of Theatre’s leading practitioners. Previous Masterclasses have been led by Casting Director Nicky Bligh, JMK Winning Director Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu & Hamilton’s Jamael Westman.
