Actor Training

A unique opportunity for adults with moderate learning disabilities who are passionate about performance, enthusiastic, ready to work hard and who want to be part of a team.

“A model of best practice”

Michaela Butter, Director of Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester


Our actor training programme offers a unique opportunity for adults, 18 year+ with learning disabilities who are interested in performance and want to develop key skills, such as movement, creating characters, stage presence and focus.

Our members will have the opportunity to work with leading theatre companies, in respected venues and to become part of the professional touring ensemble, Hubbub Theatre Company.

As well as developing their performance skills our actors will also learn to work as part of a team and build their confidence and communication skills. They will develop self-discipline, build resilience in problem solving and grow in independence, as well as have fun and make new friends.
