Young Actors Company
The RSS is very proud of its vibrant and exciting Young Actors Company which meets every Saturday afternoon (4.00pm – 6.00pm) for ten-week courses during the academic terms leading to a major production in February each year in our theatre.

Awards for its productions and has taken part in the National Theatre’s Connections Festival.
The age group for the RSS YAC is Year 10 to end of Year 13.

Junior Actors Company
The RSS has recently reopened their Junior Actors Company which meets every Wednesday
evening. There are two age groups within the company: Group One is for Years 5 & 6 (ages 9-11)
which meets from 5:00pm-6:00pm and Group Two is for Years 7 to 9 (ages 12-14) which meets
from 6:15pm-7:15pm. Sessions run throughout the academic terms.
As it’s newly opened we are working on becoming a strong team and building on skills
towards working on a show in the future.

performances on a termly or an annual basis.
The RSS JAC sessions are delivered by a professional Actor, Workshop facilitator and
Director. The sessions are at an affordable price of £6 per session. In order to create a
company that is fully accessible to everyone the fees can be discussed in certain
Theatre is a place where all are always welcome, and that’s why we don’t have an audition
