In addition to our regular classes, RPA also offer a range of services for individuals, schools and other organisations.
We regularly facilitate workshops in schools and similar settings, providing specialist teaching in all areas of drama and acting, scriptwriting, filmmaking, physical theatre and contemporary performance practice. Our bespoke workshops can be tailored to all ages and abilities.
Our week long Summer School courses are an excellent way of learning new skills through a series of intensive workshops. We work throughout the week to devise and develop material, and stage a performance for family and friends in a theatre at the end of the week.
Our personal tuition sessions are available to individuals and small groups, providing relaxed but focused workshops at a time and place to suit you. Work can cover areas such as audition technique, screen acting, characterisation, and scene study.
Red Players Management is a young performers' talent agency for professional castings. If you, or you and your child, are interested in representation, please send a clear photograph to [email protected] with the performer's full name and date of birth.

Teachers are superb! They invest so much time and effort with each child individually. My daughter looks forward to coming every week and I feel she gets so much out of being there. Red Players go that extra mile.
My daughter loves everything about RPA. From the weekly drama lessons, to the friendship, to the confidence building, to the professionalism, to the inspiration... It's just so much more. Lee & Chris are amazing x
My two girls absolutely loved the Summer School. Thank you Red Players. It's been the best summer camp my girls have attended.....by far! x
My daughter had an absolute ball at the Summer School and will definitely be back. Her smile when she came out to meet us was unforgettable; I wish you could have seen it as a reflection of everything everyone put in. Thanks so much to everyone involved.
