Yellow Academy is back this summer!
Are you a young British East Asian* who wants to work in theatre, film and television but has never been to drama school? Then Yellow Academy is for you.
Its a FREE intensive one week course for young British East Asians*(16+). It will give you a taste of life at drama school and the skills you need to become a professional actor in theatre, TV, film and radio.
This year the focus will be on AUDITION TECHNIQUE for stage and screen. Classes include movement, voice, acting for camera and Shakespeare taught by tutors from ALRA and Yellow Earth.
Here is short video about Yellow Academy
"The course far exceeded my expectations. The tutors were brilliant; very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about teaching us and as a result, we gained so much from it. My expectations were more than met - I found it intensely interesting, immersive and a very creative two weeks."
