Urban Young Actors provide weekly acting classes for young people aged 8-21 in Leicester. We want to inspire young people to be the best they can be by providing them with a safe, creative environment in which to express themselves, unlock their potential and have great fun at the same time!
As well as regular workshops, we frequently run large-scale projects for our members. Past opportunities have included staged productions, short films, festivals, competitions and a feature film that premiered at the Odeon cinema.
We pride ourselves on delivering workshops of the highest standard that are accessible to young people of all levels of experience and ability. Our alumni include Mahalia (Brit & Grammy Award-Nominated Artist), Jurell Carter (Emmerdale, ITV), Owen Warner (Hollyoaks, Channel 4), Dilan Raithatha (West End playwright) and Devesh Sodha (award-winning composer).
As well as theatre, we also place great focus on TV and film and utilise industry professionals who are experts in their field.
Whatever your experience or aspirations, all you need is passion and a willingness to learn and there is a place for you in our Urban family.
