“The theatre school nurtures and develops young people and it is easy to see the passion and delight of the students”– Rev Danny Crosby, Unitarian Minister

 “We were delighted to welcome A. C. T. S. and in particular ACT II to North Cestrian Grammar School. It is a pleasure to share our facilities with such a worthwhile organisation who do wonderful work with the youth of the area.   We look forward to a long working relationship with A.C.T.S. and we hope to contribute to their success in the future”. –  Patsy Ratcliffe, School Bursar

  Through strong leadership and vision, ACTS has engendered a sense of belonging and community in their two youth theatre groups.” –  Peter Hughes, Parent

 “My daughter, like all the children who participate, thoroughly enjoy every moment, gaining confidence and good friends. The volunteer tutors dedicate their time and enthusiasm to create a super theatre group.” – Alison Jurkowski Parent

 “The school certainly lived up to its name” – John Powell, Drama Adjudicator

I think that ACTS has been excellent for Emma.  When she started she didn’t know anyone and the leaders and peers were very friendly and welcoming.  She has developed her confidence, made new friends and been able to take a leading role in a production.  All of which helps towards her continuing ambition to be an actress.  I think the relatively small group suits her personality as she is never good a putting herself forward! I think the environment helps her to feel comfortable to fully participate.” – Alison Kinsey, Parent

“It was amazing, honestly one of the best productions I have seen. We thoroughly enjoyed it. All the cast were brilliant and it was so lovely to see how far some of them have developed. Very proud of all of them” – Karen Bennett, Parent

Thanks again for all your hard work, Hannah really enjoys Acts.
Nick & Ruth Gibson, Parents
