Summer Term 2021: 

We are so looking forward to being back in the studio! We are currently planning a professional and exciting term for our students.

We are thrilled to say on the 25th May, we will be hosting Jeremy Zimmerman - successful casting director. He will be leading a mock casting and giving us a great insight into casting and what it takes to be a film actor. 

YPS will also be filming the students at the end of term in a tailored scene that will be professionally edited and owned by the student. 

More workshops and opportunities to be confirmed soon.



What is a workshop?

The students experience at least three workshops every term. These are visiting industry professionals that focus on a particular skill. For example, comedy, Shakespeare, acting for film, stage/screen combat etc.

Will I do any performing?

YPS is all about providing as many different experiences as possible! Each term the student will have a chance to act in front of the camera, of which they will receive footage or perform for friends and family. 

What is the difference between the older and younger class?

Each class will receive similar training and experiences but the technique in which it is taught may differ. Script materials also differ to enable maximum enjoyment as well as age appropriation.

Can I apply if I don't want to get into acting professionally?

Our classes are popular with young people that are interested in acting, performing, a career in acting or a child/teenager that needs a boost in confidence, social skills and public speaking skills. 

When are the auditions?

We hold auditions before every term. If you want to read about why we audition and the process, click me.
