Our very first academy. Established 2010.

A new Monday class has just been addded to the Camberley Academy starting on 08/01/23 - 25/03/23 (no class on 12/02/23).

This academy is the leading option for young actor training in the Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire area.

Please enquire about ages and appropriate groups. Division of groups by age is not an exact science at HAYA and is based on the individual needs and the demographic demands at the time.

You will be taught the craft of acting.

  • Voice and Speech
  • Movement
  • Classical Performance
  • Acting for screen / Naturalism
  • Theatre performance skills
  • Stage Combat
  • Devising & Theatre Making
  • Accent & Dialect
  • Improvisation
  • Character Developmenmt

Each year our young actors are given the opportunity to show off their acquired skills in an actors showcase.

Every actor at HAYA is offered a place on our agency books. This is purely optional and does not affect or impact upon the training and enjoyment of the workshops should you decide not to join.

Actors who join the agency will be seen regularly for professional work in Film, TV, commercials and theatre through castings and auditions with some of the industry’s leading casting directors.

HAYA is a brilliant experience for young actors. I’ve been at HAYA for 6 years and throughout my journey here I have grown as an actor and as a person. I’ve cultivated long lasting meaningful friendships with a community of young actors who have helped me through hard times. As a company we often create amazing performances that showcase our talents as well as stretch our abilities.
