Acting Up Drama workshops for kids and young people

Sat 21 September 2019

Acting Up provides innovative drama workshops throughout the year for young people between the ages of 4.5 and 16, and has been running at the CCA for over a decade.

Run by award winning writer and actor Clare Hemphill and her enthusiastic young team, it provides a safe and cost friendly space for the children to develop their creativity, confidence and performance skills. Importantly too, it is a place to have fun and make friends, while the adults can relax in the café or wander round the bookshop and CCA exhibitions.

Clare crafted her skills through working with some of the most innovative theatre in the UK. She is an accomplished actor, TV and film writer with a comedy background. She encourages the children to find their own individual voice and every year there is a Christmas and Summer Show for them to present to the public their own unique take on the world.

All classes offer a three week trial at £6 PAYG with a warm welcome to newcomers of mixed ability. There is no audition process. 8 week blocks are £70 and £75. Email Clare at or text 07974270053.

Acting Up also offers a short half hour class, specialising in communication for children and young people who have ASD and those who find it difficult to access the mainstream class (currently from age 10 upwards). If you have a young person who you think might benefit from that class, please get in touch.
