Edinburgh’s private acting school for over 30 years. A creative outlet for extroverts to use their energies or for the less outgoing to build confidence and life skills.


Welcome to Edinburgh Acting School

Welcome to the Edinburgh Acting School Website. Edinburgh Acting School (EAS) was founded in 1982 and continues to provide an extensive programme of part-time courses in acting and related performance skills. It has given its many students, both adults and children, the opportunity to learn and train in a professional and supportive environment. It is currently an adult-only school.

WHY EAS? All of our tutors work in the industry and many are performers themselves making our training unique, relevant and of a high standard. We take regular feedback from our students and tailor the classes to meet the needs and wants, rather than sticking to a rigid programme with no flexibility for strengths and weaknesses within each class. We are also the original acting school in Edinburgh and have a stellar reputation to match,  many students return after breaks or stick around for years! Check out our video below for a better insight into what we do or scroll down for more FAQ.

WHO CAN JOIN? Anyone, no experience is required! Classes are available to adults (no upper age limit) in class environments as well as individual lessons in voice work, presentation skills, audition work and many more tailored to your needs. 

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT? Students are given a solid foundation in the performing arts and often go on to full-time training having developed confidence and gained experience. Others do acting as a hobbie and there is no pressure to take it further than that, only support if this is what you choose. Expect to have fun, get out of your comfort zone, make friends, learn new skills and exercise your talents!

WILL I BECOME FAMOUS? There are no guarantees in the acting world but if you wish to become a successful actor we will support you every step of the way. No-one can promise you fame and we prefer to encourage success anyway but that is not to say that some of our students haven’t gone on to get themselves well known as performers. We put on regular shows and presentations to give you performance experience, which we fundraise for throughout the year. This gives students the opportunity to share their talent with family, friends, other thespians and even agents or casting directors on occasion!
