Windmill Young Actors is a POC-led youth theatre company providing weekly acting classes for children, teenagers and young adults in Brighton, Lewes and Hastings. We are the “go to club” to make pro-level theatre in the South East for those who can’t afford high fees. We want young people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to engage in the arts to look at pro-level theatre and the arts sector with familiarity, comfort and a sense there is an open door.
We make artistically ambitious, youth-led award-winning contemporary theatre which is co-created with young people. We pride ourselves on making classical art unique and accessible, mixing Shakespeare with verbatim & rap, combining ancient Greek tragedy with contemporary physical theatre.
Young people are treated as artists in training, developing their skills to a professional level.They are fully immersed in the real world of an ensemble theatre company, working on productions from start to finish, including behind the scenes. They make work which speaks to them and their experiences, platforming their voices and supporting them to explore ideas they find challenging or exciting.
What we do
15 term-time weekly theatre clubs across the city, including:
3 free theatre clubs in Hollingdean, Hangleton & Knoll and Whitehawk
2 major theatre productions every year
