About Us

 

Academy was started in January 2014 (Previously named Acting Academy) as the youth section of Romiley Little Theatre. In 2016, Academy became independent of RLT but still remains in partnership, providing young members for the future of this well established community theatre group. This year we are proud and excited to announce that we are launching our dance classes. These sessions are being lead by exceptional practitioners, in their field & we believe, the disciplines we have chosen will have the best impact on our students movement development and will bring forth a spectacular element to our productions.

Partner Associates

 

Our partner by association is a community theatre company called Romiley Little Theatre. Our own founder Adam Urey started his first theatre explorations with them and both companies continue to support each other's theatrical ventures. Academy often collaborate with RLT on joint productions. The group is full of talent and consistently produce community theatre of the highest standard. When signing up to Academy, our members automatically become members of RLT. If you are an adult, looking to tread the boards, work in areas of stage management such as set building, lighting or sound or even just want to be involved with the community and their frequent social events, they are always looking for members.
