Actor training for the modern industry
We have created a training programme to give you all the tools you will need as a modern working actor. No homework, no essays; just you, on your feet learning the skills you will need as a professional performer. Our actors learn how they can harness the power of their breath, body and voice to tell stories, create characters and generate impactful performances.

We offer two vocational training courses for actors. Each are taught across a full 12-month academic year of study.
ACCELERATED ACTOR TRAINING PROGRAMME
This course is designed to create industry-ready actors within two years, in place of traditional three year degree programmes. With a graduate employment rate of 87%*, a reputation for developing theatre-makers, as well as award-winning actors, the Fourth Monkey Two Year Rep is considered one of the most innovative and successful actor training programmes in the UK today.
Year of the Monkey
ONE YEAR INTENSIVE ACTOR TRAINING PROGRAMME
This is an equally successful course, taught to the same principles and ethos of the Two Year Rep. However, it offers more flexible training for those looking for foundation or post-graduate study within an ensemble setting. The course concludes with a repertory season of work at the Camden Fringe Festival.
Fourth Monkey really taught me to understand how to use the tools I was born with to express myself – like my body and voice. I often find myself in situations where I refer back to the knowledge acquired during training at Fourth Monkey whether that be in movement lessons, voice classes or when studying individual unique practitioners.Kirsty Hobson
