Rep Company (17-25s)
Tell me about it…
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.
Sounds amazing. How do I apply?
Applications have now closed for this year. But signup to our mailing list and we’ll keep you updated with new REP Company Auditions in the future.
It is a year long commitment (Jan-Dec 2021) and so we are not looking for actors who are considering applying for Drama School (Sept 2021 enrolment) as there will be shows and showcases throughout the year which may require bigger commitment.
The Rep Company will meet weekly on Tuesdays 11-1pm (term time only), beginning Tues 5th Jan 2021.
We don’t mean to blow our own trumpet, but…
