We meet every Sunday in term time at the Studio theatre at New Wimbledon Theatre.

Act One (Yr 6,7,&8): 10am-12pm

Act Two (Yr 9&10): 12.15pm-2.15pm

Act Three (Yr 11,12&13): 2.30pm-4.30pm


Fees for September 2022-July 2023: 

£300 due at time of booking – final deadline Sunday September 4 2022 

£300 due on Sunday January 8 2023 

£144 due on Sunday April 23 2023 

We keep the fees as affordable and competitive as possible; they are designed to cover the cost of running Sunday sessions, including paying for experienced directors and theatre hire, classes with specialist practitioners, and production costs for our shows. Our 2022-23 fees are £300 cheaper per academic year than other popular performance groups in the area and are the equivalent to just over £10 per hour of classes plus the costs of a full production in the New Wimbledon Theatre Studio. 


We are committed to running our OPEN DOOR Scheme this year with 15 free places available across the membership. OPEN DOOR is for students who would otherwise not be able to access or afford performing arts training. You can request a place for OPEN DOOR within this registration. You must be eligible in order to apply.

Please note that booking for paid and Open Door places is for the full academic year: if a young person does not wish to continue attending the Young Actors Company, we would ask you to provide at least half a term’s notice in writing.
