The Anthos Young Company
What is the Anthos Young Company?
The Anthos Young Company (or AYC as we like to call it) is a theatre group for young people ages 11-18 with a passion for performing and interest in the arts. The aim of the AYC is to teach aspiring performers what it is like to work in a professional theatre company, guiding them through the process of devising new work and the various aspects that are involved in putting different shows for different audiences.
Each project will not only see AYC members work as a cast to produce new work but also receive professional performer training. Our training programme covers a variety of acting techniques and fields, from naturalistic to physical theatre, comedy to puppetry and beyond. There are always new skills to learn and new challenges to help build performance and rehearsal experience.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have revised our approach to teaching sessions, in accordance with the guidelines for out-of-school clubs issued by the Department of Education. For a full breakdown of how we are incorporating social distancing in our sessions, please click here to view our guidelines page.
Where sessions are cancelled due to a local or national lockdown, or rehearsals are not able to take place, we will offer a full refund to parents. Where possible, any cancelled performances will be rescheduled.
