Act II is a youth theatre company running drama and music classes for young people aged 4-20. Members work towards performances and exams, while developing skills, building confidence, making friends and, most importantly, having fun! Our performances are in a range of styles and genres and often exercise the company's research interests in pushing the boundaries of theatre and performing in non-theatrical locations.
