"Some fantastic people that I have been fortunate to work with in the West End have asked me about St Ives and I have replied, 'to appreciate my home town you must come down and do some teaching and give a rare opportunity for young people down here to work with you'."
The four-day summer school is called, West End To South West.
It will be held at St Ives Theatre between Tuesday and Friday.
It is open to anyone aged between 11 and 21 years old.
The cost of a place is £130 which includes all classes and an end of week performance showcase.
Places are on a first-come, first-served basis.
Working alongside Jay over the four days will be Jonathan Williams who has worked at Sadler's Wells, The National Theatre and Royal Opera House, and Laura Bennett who has appeared in Mamma Mia!, We Will Rock You, Never Forget – The Take That Musical. She can also be seen in TV commercials for Premier Inn, Burger King and Vodafone.
Jay said: "I want the four days to be lots of fun but the work is going to be very intensive starting at 9.45am prompt and finishing at 5pm.
"Our summer school will give an insight into the focus, dedication and work ethic at stage school."
