The Actors Company

For those aged over 21, our non-professional Actors Company perform classic, contemporary and new work commissioned by Royal & Derngate. Led by theatre practitioners, members enjoy masterclasses in performance skills such as voice, movement and text, as well as working alongside professional directors to devise, rehearse and perform productions in our performance spaces. The Actors Company also enables its members to develop their social and communication skills, gain confidence and make new friends.
