Must applicants have previous acting experience?

No. The Young Pro School of Acting takes children of all levels of experience. We are looking for a sincere enjoyment in acting and a willing to learn.

What is the audition process?

1. After we receive your application, we will send you a choice of monologues. 2. Choose 2x monologues, and prepare. We are most persuaded by auditionees that learn their monologues and think about their character background. 3. You will film your monologue, filming on a phone in good lighting is fine. And send to us. 4. We will also have a follow up Zoom interview. This will be an informal chat about why you would like to join YPS classes. We also may ask you to perform your monologue again, in a different way. 5. We will let you know the results via email within a few days following the interview.

How much does YPS cost?

Our weekly classes are once a week, two hours long and run for 11 weeks. This costs £218.90. This price includes all workshops during term time and edited films that the students take home. A uniform t shirt costs £12, this is mandatory if you attend weekly classes. Other merchanise is optional. The Virtual Studio is priced seperately. For YPS students it is usually a reduced price or no charge. Please visit The Virtual Studio for more information.

What is The Virtual Studio?

The Virtual Studio is a term that includes all of our online services. This could be mini challenges for social media, plus group courses and one2one training. We use Zoom and is taught by a collection of YPS coaches and guest coaches. Please visit for more information.

Do I have to audition for The Virtual Studio/online classes?

No, for the classes that are for Guest YPS/Non-members you do not have to audition. But you must sign up and fill in the necessary information.

Can I attend a single workshop if I am not a YPS student?

Unfortunately, we do not offer workshops to non-members. We encourage people to audition and sign up to the weekly classes, all workshops are included in the termly price.

Why do you do online auditions?

We usually do online or in person, however, with the recent Covid-19 situation, we are looking to move many of our services online. However, we love to provide a really rewarding on experience, giving everyone as much opportunity as possible. We ask to see your speech, and then may redirect you and will ask you questions about why you want to join. We don't expect everyone to be professional, we just want to see enthusiasm!

How are you managing with Covid-19?

We are a small, young business that is learning to adapt and evolve. We have a community of incredibly supportive students and parents that we are so proud to have. We have developed The Virtual Studio, which is a collection of online classes and courses taught by our coaches. This is a great way to trial YPS and to get some quick training without booking a whole term. We are supporting those parents who may have lost their job through the pandemic, and are willing to offer payment schemes for those who need it.

What makes you different to other acting schools?

We know that there are not many choices of performing arts classes that just focus on acting, and we always provide high-quality professional training. But aside from that, we are proud to get to know each of our students. We understand that all children are different, learn differently and have various strengths. We want to work with each child to help them achieve their personal goals, from confidence, to public speaking to audition technique.

I am concerned about my current financial situation...

Many people have been effected by current events and have taken financial cuts. We want students to be able begin classes if they want to, they can be so beneficial and supportive, particuarly through these difficult times. We are changing our termly notice period to 1 month (instead of half a term), and we will also be providing payment schemes on request. We want to support our parents and students as much as we are able.

I want to audition for the summer show/play?

You must be a YPS student to join in in the play. However, once you have auditioned and received an offer from us, everyone is involved in the plays. You may audition to detemine which part you get, but you will always have a role if you are a YPS student. Apply here.
