“It has given India a chance to use her writing in a collaborative environment. She’s gained in confidence performing in front of an audience. She loves coming every Saturday and really enjoys the group.”
“Who Are You?”
Windmill Young Actors was founded by professional and award winning theatre and director Tanushka Marah.
“What is a Youth Theatre Company?”
In a theatrical context the word ‘company’ means ‘togetherness’. Every member is equally valued and mutual support, encouragement and honesty are basic requirements.
“Why do it?”
Because we love it! Drama classes, when run correctly, have a hugely beneficial and transforming effect on the individuals who attend. We had an 8 year old come in on their first day clinging to their parent. By the end of term they were leading 50 young actors in a huge ensemble performance piece. This stuff works!
Windmill Young Actors is a company where every member has a voice, where every member is invited to grow and try and learn. Like nothing else, drama allows us all to explore every aspect of ourselves in a safe and supportive environment.
Not only that, but we believe that through structured rehearsal and team work, a young ensemble can create thought-provoking, exciting and passionate performance suitable for everyone.
“How do I join?”
Come along and try out a free drama class taster session on a Saturday or a Thursday. If you enjoy it and we have space then you’re in!
