School of Acting
Theatre Royal Margate is thrilled to announce that in collaboration with Looping the Loop CIC our new youth theatre, The School of Acting is open for business.
New Year, New Hobby?
The School of Acting has been operating virtually during COVID and we’re pleased to announce we are now throwing open the doors at the Theatre Royal Margate once again and we want you to step in and join us. We’ve had an absolute blast meeting on zoom during lockdown, with sessions on improvisation, screen acting and even a visit from Nicholas Briggs, voice of the Daleks! We can’t wait to see what the new term has in store. Why not come along for a FREE taster session and see what all the fuss is about?
The School of Acting is open to everyone from absolute beginners to experienced actors. By joining The School of Acting you will work with professional Theatre Practitioner Darren Hill, in addition to regular masterclasses delivered by expert theatre professionals. The group stages a public show each year inside the Theatre Royal Margate. But most importantly, The School of Acting is a youth lead programme meaning YOU get to decide what you learn and shape your own projects.
If you are aged between 11-16 and want to meet new friends, have amazing fun and work on exciting new projects then get in touch today and book your FREE trial. We can’t wait to welcome you.
The School of Acting meets on Tuesday evenings between 6 to 7:30pm at the Theatre Royal Margate.
£25 per 6 week half term.
To ensure everyone is able to attend, Looping the Loop are also launching five “Community Scholarships” this Spring for students who would find it difficult to afford the fees. No interviews or auditions are required, just a brief friendly conversation with a team member.
For more info or if you have any questions please contact Darren at: firstname.lastname@example.org

We look forward to hearing from you!
School of Acting
“School of Acting” takes its name from the acting school set up in 1885 by legendary 19th century British actress and actress-manager, Sarah Thorne, at Theatre Royal Margate. It is now widely recognised that Sarah Thorne’s “School of Acting” was the UK’s first formal drama school. It was attended by a young Edward Gordon Craig who went on to become the undisputed father of modern theatre design – arguably the most important theatre practitioner to come out of Britain since William Shakespeare.
