Cygnet Training Theatre





At Cygnet Theatre we offer a vocational actor training unlike any other. We are the only drama school in the UK where students perform in front of the paying public from the first term of their training. We believe it is this hands-on style training that is responsible for the success of our graduates as working actors once they leave Cygnet.

The Cygnet company regularly performs at Cygnet Theatre and sometimes on tour.

Reviewers have described our work as 'RSC calibre' (Daisy Blacklock) and as having 'superlative standards of self-discipline and expression, both vocally and physically' (Arthur Duncan).

Reviewer Avril Silk has said 'I am so impressed by the high quality of the work I have seen.'

Cygnet Theatre also hosts a variety of visiting companies, both local and national.
