About Us

Drama Classes, Dance Classes and Singing Classes in Hitchin.
Classes run Saturdays during school term time

Come and join us at Theatretrain Hitchin for  dance, drama and singing classes for 6-18 year olds. Whether you’re a West End wannabe or a shy wallflower looking to make friends and gain confidence this is the place for you. Our ethos is as a ‘performance company’ and ALL students take part in ALL productions whatever their level of ability. We believe this not only gives our students skills and confidence in performance but also respect and appreciation for each other AND the responsibility of working for the team not just themselves.
So come along…we’d love to have you on board!

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
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!
