ACTING to access ability

Providing drama opportunities since 2010

ActAble believe that taking part in drama activities can help us all to be better people. We teach performance skills, whilst using drama to develop essential life-skills; such as creativity, confidence & collaboration.

We provide a wide range of drama opportunities to the community in Brighton and Sussex, including:



COMING TO NEWHAVEN LATER THIS YEAR! After 6 successful years in Brighton.

"My daughter really enjoyed the drama classes with Sami and always skipped home afterwards full of stories of what she'd been up to. Sami is great with children and brilliant at encouraging them to act out their imaginative stories."

"My son is now in the gifted & talented program at school! He is auditioning for productions & has a workshop at the Theatre Royal & it is all down to you!"

“I really enjoy ActAble. It has taught me a lot about acting & I have made friends.”

If you have a group who would like to try a drama session, contact Sami at
We also provide private acting tuition for children and adults, including those with learning disability or additional needs. 

Play and Drama

There is a recognised national decline in the amount and quality in which children are playing.
There are 16 recognised "play types" & 10 of them are accessible through drama: communication play, creative play, dramatic play, fantasy play, imaginative play, locomotor play, role play, social play, socio-dramatic play & symbolic play.

Sami-Jayne (director of ActAble) is also a playworker, children's entertainer & trained actress. At ActAble, as well as formal instruction, opportunities & time are provided for children to access these play types & thereby learn through them.

After all, why is a play, called a play?


We can come to your school to run a weekly drama club. The children gain confidence & have fun learning performance skills. Additionally we can bring the syllabus alive through drama (e.g. Tudors, Victorians).

Drama for schools is available throughout Sussex and surrounding areas. Contact Sami to discuss your requirements at or 07891670114.

Our sister company can provide your school with discos and children's themed parties.
