Actor Musician Academy

A pioneering opportunity inviting young artists to explore actor musicianship.

Actor Musician Academy 2016

DumbWise's pioneering Actor Musician Academy (AMA) launched this year with a brand new adaptation of Angela Carter's 'The Lady of the House of Love', made for and with a group of aspiring actors and musicians. After a week of exploring the craft of actor musicianship in Easter 2016, the young cast came back together in the Summer to rehearse and stage the production in The Garage's Main House Theatre.

In association with The Garage, Norwich and Arts Council England.

" I have really grown in confidence and have seen a different side to theatre."

- Amy AMA participant

" I've really enjoyed this week. It has opened up doors for me as it has shown me a style of theatre that I'd never really looked into before."

- Rachel AMA participant


Have you got young people who would benefit from this programme?

We want to join forces with more regional venues and organisations to create actor musician based participation projects.

We will create a project format that suits you and your young people.
