Our Approach
For over two decades we’ve championed an exhilarating approach to theatre school education in the theatrical arts for young people aged 3-18.  We’re proud that our classes build Theatretrain students into, not only better performers but also well rounded, self-assured young people.

Our stage school students have fantastic opportunities to perform on stage in local, regional and world famous West End venues, making memories of a lifetime.  We also offer chances to perform internationally in New York and the Main Street Parade in Disneyland Paris.

All students have the chance to perform every year.

Our stage school brings out the best in students, builds confidence, and gives aspiring young professionals opportunities of a lifetime via our large scale London shows and our smaller local shows each year.  Rather than a blanket approach, we tailor our classes to develop and enhance the skills of our students and give everyone a chance to shine.

We accept students from areas around Hertfordshire including  Sawbridgeworth, Harlow, Buntingford, Stanstead and surrounding areas.
No auditions are necessary as we teach them everything they need to know!
