About the Group

Actors' Family (AF) is established in 1991 by graduates of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. As Hong Kong's leading musical theatre company, it is committed to produce quality original Cantonese musicals, fostering local theatre development and enriching cultural lives in the city. AF strives to produce musicals that reflect daily lives with the aim to engage audiences and promote theatre arts. In recent years, AF has organised the Musical Writing Incubation Scheme in hope of building a sustainable platform to support new works from creation, preview to public staging.

Over the years, AF has created and adapted various musical productions, many of which received nominations and awards at the Hong Kong Drama Awards. Reaching beyond Hong Kong, AF has been touring productions to the mainland, facilitating genuine cultural exchange and promoting Hong Kong original musicals.

Programmes conducted in Cantonese.

All activities of the scheme are free of charge.
