ATS Productions is a new theatre company dedicated to giving young actors an opportunity to showcase their talents.
This is a natural development of the Artists’ Theatre School which was started in 1998 by Amanda Redman MBE, with Freda Gill, Julie Legrand and Ann Mutlow as a school for young actors from all backgrounds.
The school continues to produce a stream of talented young actors who have learned the technical skills of their trade and are ready to take the next step in their careers; however the opportunities open to young actors to develop further have dwindled with the collapse of Repertory Theatre and the pressures on drama schools. This leaves many of the school’s members struggling to get their “break” and to make the transition into full time acting careers. Frustrated by this block on her pupils’ career paths, Amanda has decided to break the mould from within and to expand the scope of the Artists’ Theatre School to include a touring theatre company – ATS Productions.
