Our Approach

For over two decades we’ve championed an exhilarating approach to theatre school education
in the theatrical arts for young people aged 6-18.

We teach our children how to Dance, Act and Sing in performing arts classes at Great Baddow High School.

Our Stage school brings out the best in students, builds confidence and gives aspiring young actors opportunities of a lifetime via our large scale London shows and our smaller local shows each year.

We accept students from areas around Chelmsford and surrounding areas.

No auditions are necessary as we teach our students everything they need to know!
