Our Act companies are led by a range of Curve artists who are professional theatre directors and practising actors.

This strand is for young people who want to develop their skills by learning about the fundamental principles of acting to ensure their talent is able to grow. This will include developing character, voice technique, working from text, writing for performance, directing and devised theatre practices.
