About Us

Italia Conti Plymouth  was established in 1998 and since 2009 has been run by Becky Ann Camp.

It provides children from a large catchment area in Devon and Cornwall with first class performing arts training with emphasis on enjoyment, with pupils developing confidence, creativity and self-discipline from their involvement.

Many pupils eventually progress to full time training and become the professional performers we see on stage and screen today.


Our Thursday, Friday and Saturday classes take place at Discovery College in Plymouth.

The Italia Conti Academy is a theatre arts training school based in London. It was founded in 1911 by actress Italia Conti. The Academy grew out of the first production of the play Where the Rainbow Ends.

The Academy’s principle has always been to provide a thorough education and training. Staff of professional experts give students that enter the profession with the necessary professional skills, having also been encouraged to develop their social talents and to evolve a set of standards essential for personal and professional fulfilment.

More information about our history is available on wikipedia and the main italia conti website.
