The RSS is very proud of its vibrant and exciting Young Actors Company which meets every Saturday afternoon (5.00pm – 7.00pm) for ten-week courses during the academic terms leading to a major production in February each year in our theatre.

The RSS YAC has received nominations and awards at the annual Arts Richmond Swan
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.

The RSS YAC is taught and led by professional DBS checked and qualified drama teachers
and directors. Fees are kept low in accordance with our charity status with the current fee
being £7 for each two-hour session and consideration can be given to a waiver of fees in
certain circumstances.

There is no audition process for joining the RSS YAC which is an inclusive organization with places for two special needs children. The only restriction is that membership of the RSS YAC is limited to a maximum of 24 young students each year.

All members of the RSS YAC are required to become Junior Members of the RSS which
(amongst other benefits) entitles them to audition and take part in other RSS productions.

For further information on the RSS YAC and to apply to join please contact Katie Abbott at
