The Minack Academies

Our Minack Academies help young people to develop advanced theatre skills.  Specialising either in Acting or Musical Theatre, you will spend one day a month working with professional practitioners and hear visiting speakers, such as directors, actors and West End stars, talking about practical theatre careers. Young people will receive performance opportunities as well as taking part in Trinity exams each July.
