Questors Student Group is probably the best thing that could have
happened to me as someone always wanted to be an actor but didn't know
where to start. Since I graduated, I've been on TV, appeared in movies
and co-wrote my own play which was performed at the Questors. All that
would never have happened without the Student Group. I owe it
~ Wesley Lloyd, Group 62
Questors Academy really grounded me as an actor where I found my stage
craft in a pragmatic sense to perform in different styles of plays.
Since then I have gone on to train at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting
and The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute in NYC and now I’m
working as a professional actor in London’s West End."
~ Roberto Cohen, Group 69
"My time at the Questors was invaluable to me. Not only is the
theatre itself so welcoming and creative, but the Student Group in
particular was a fundamental step on my path to drama school. I am now a
professional actor and always remember my time on Mattock Lane with
such love and happiness."
~ Jasmin Hinds, Group 66
was absolutely fundamental to my acceptance into drama school. The
integrated training program with individualistic feedback and
professional level of production standards was just what I needed before
entering the profession. The communal respect and love for theatre is
unlike anywhere else."
~ Wayne Wilson, Group 68
two years I spent at the Questors Student group were perhaps the best of
my life! I learnt so much; the voice, movement and acting classes were
always challenging but rewarding. It inspired me to go on to the Oxford
School of Drama and later to work as a professional actress on the West
End stage. Aside from the career it led me to, mostly it was somewhere I
felt I belonged and where I created wonderful memories with friends I
made for life.."
~ Eleanor Cox, Group 64
love the Questors! From the moment I stepped into the audition room, I
knew I had found my creative home. The quality of the acting classes
alongside body movement and voice work - exceeded my expectations as I
was constantly encouraged to explore and push my boundaries. With the
guidance of my teacher, David Emmet, I was able to tap into a level of
creativity I never knew existed and reach new heights in my craft. I
have become more confident, adaptable, and innovative in my approach,
which helped in all areas of my life. It's been hell of a ride! Plus,
being a member means you get to experience all aspects of theatre life -
from acting and directing to lighting, front of house, and stage
design. So if you're passionate about performing arts and you’re ready
for a transformative experience, the Questors Academy is the perfect
place for you.’’
~ Alexandrina Bivol, Group 73
Questors Student group was outstanding. What you learn will helps you
take risks, pushing yourself way past your limitations and comfort zone.
This environment is safe for you to make mistakes and grow within
yourself and your craft. The fun vibrant talented fellow actors you'll
meet will be your friends for life! It will prep you for Drama School or
reignite your passion and confidence to prepare you for the
professional world! I loved every minute of it!"
~ Sherralyn Croft, Group 63
offers a uniquely dedicated and accessible drama training, as well as a
warm community of wonderful people. I feel grateful to this day that I
was able to join the course and engage with such professional tutors and
teaching practices, which allowed me to quickly build my confidence and
experience, so that I was able to apply to the best drama schools and
get a place at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I continue to
work as an actor and just returned from Kenya where I played a leading
role in a feature film. I'm also now a filmmaker and this year had my
first paid commission as a writer/director. I'm indebted to Questors for
giving such a strong start to my career."
~ Tom Lincoln, Group 63
you want to apply for drama school, to push the boundaries of "amateur"
acting, or to refresh your acting skills after a long hiatus, look no
further than Questors student group. When I joined I wanted to take my
hobby further. I never would have predicted the skills, camaraderie and
inspiration I found there. Ultimately, because of Questors, I found the
confidence to quit my job and take a Masters in Acting. Now I am looking
for agents and applying for professional acting work. None of this
would have been possible without the dedicated teaching, the facilities
and friendships I made at Questors. It is and always will be very dear
to my heart."
~ Emma Graveling, Group 75
incredible experience. Not only did we get stuck into the nitty gritty
world of Stanislavski from week one, we practiced what we preached and
put on weekly performances (either as exercises internally or, later on,
more public performances). The nuancing of the course means you start
from the basic building blocks of acting until you fully flourish on
stage in two full performances in the second year. Hence, definitely do
both years! You learn so much and make so many friends. I went to Drama
School afterwards and still use the notes I was given at Questors! What a
beautiful place to learn the beautiful game (of acting, that is!)”
~ Zac Karaman, Group 70
excellent and expansive two-year course that Questors provides brought
me along greatly, both as an actor and as an individual. It is ideal for
anyone wishing to enhance their skills and better their chances for
survival in this difficult profession."
~ Matthew Saldanha, Group 72
could not recommend the course at Questors enough. I nearly cancelled
the audition because I had had very little experience acting and was
incredibly shy and insecure. But the warmth, professionalism and
camaraderie of Questors worked its magic. The care and skill of the
teachers nurtures even the most doubting soul and the trust and
connection between the students is magic. You pick up skills for life in
this haven, so do apply - it will be the making of you."
~ Ruth Comerford, Group 72
“Acting at Questors has given me freedom I forgot I have. Exploring myself through different characters and learning some pretty awesome lines from Stoppard's plays has given me an extraordinary sense of achievement and accomplishment. I have fallen in love with my acting family.”
~ Ania Choroszcynska, Group 75
“I've been involved at the Questors since I was 7 and have been in many a production here. My most notable have been 'On the Razzle', 'Around the World in 80 Days' and the recent 'Good Times Together with the Everly Brothers' musical try-out. I feel very at home here. But the past two years on the course have changed me as a performer."
~ Jacob Chancellor, Group 75
