Performing arts franchise

Theatretrain has successfully opened franchises for over 25 years, we have 72 centres around the UK, teaching 3,500 kids nationwide. As a company we have performed at many West end Theatres in the last 27 years including The Theatre Royal Drury Lane, The London Palliadum, Sadler’s Wells and even the prestigious Royal Albert Hall. In 2013 Theatretrain celebrated its 21st Anniversary by taking all 3,500 Theatretrain students and performing at the O2 Arena.

 What’s involved?

Becoming a Centre Director and taking responsibility for your own centre is a challenge that is hugely rewarding.

Your role is to run weekly Theatretrain classes, with an enthusiastic energetic team of teachers. You also deal with the marketing of your centres and annual shows either locally or nationally.

A background in the performing arts is not a necessary requirement but you will need a passion and drive to succeed. especially as you see such changes in pupils and take them on a journey that leads the way to some wonderful West End theatres. Your pleasure partly comes from their pleasure as they learn new skills and make new performances.


With its experience of franchising Theatretrain offers a support network second to none.

Once your franchise area is agreed with our directors, full training is given on the Theatretrain Ethos, how to run your business and how to manage your digital and social profiles.

As a Franchisee you will work closely with other franchisees in our large scale shows where we work together as a team, not in competition but as an ensemble.
