OUR OVER 16s GROUPS
We have two over 16s groups which run at our Quad Studios venue in Leicester City Centre.
AGE: 16-21 years
GROUP 1: Thursday 5-7pm
GROUP 2: Thursday 7-9pm
WHERE: Quad Studios, 78 Friday St, Leicester LE1 3BW
Our over 16s groups are for young actors aged 16-21 and we meet every week in Leicester City Centre at Quad Studios.
Many of our students go on to undertake formal training at drama school and find Urban to be the perfect prerequisite to becoming a professional actor. Others become a member to build their confidence, learn new skills and get experience performing on stage or in front of a camera. Whatever your motivation, all we’re looking for is passion. Passion to imagine, to play, to be part of an ensemble. Urban has been the start of so many lifelong friendships with previous students going on to form theatre companies and work together in the industry, or taking the transferable skills they’ve learnt at Urban into completely different careers.
Most importantly, our workshops are fun and accessible to young people with all levels of experience.
“I came to Urban not knowing anything about acting. Without Urban, there is no way I would’ve been able to make a dent in the industry,”
– Owen Warner (‘Romeo’ in Hollyoaks)
