Our Approach

For over 25 years we’ve championed an exhilarating approach to theatre school education in the theatrical arts for young people aged 4-18.
We teach our children how to Dance, Act and Sing in performing arts classes at Hitchin Girls’ School

Our theatre 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 Hitchin including Letchworth, Stotfold, Baldock and  surrounding areas.
No auditions are necessary as we teach them everything they need to know!
