All classes are held at

55 Parkgate




NOW ENROLLING FOR January 2020! 

All students in both 'Main Stage' and 'Infants' will be part of two staged musical productions per year, written especially for each age group.


Writing our own musicals allows us to use modern and popular musical numbers that students wouldnt normally get to perform.

We also host several holiday Musical Theatre workshops throughout the year.   See our Classes & Workshops page for details.

"For the first time in a very long time... Lucas has not stopped smiling and been so proud to tell me all about his day... I have never see him talk so confidently, I can't wait to see how he grows through this week"

"Joanne and Paul bring the best out of every person. You are wonderful people and have such a passion for what you do which shows when you put on a performance. The memories you are making  for these children is amazing!"

"Madison had a fantastic time at Summer School. She enjoyed it all, but particularly dance the most as it was ‘fast paced’ and fun!  Although she didn’t know anyone, she was made to feel very welcome and she made new friends during the week and looked forward to going each day.  Madison was particularly proud to be given the part of the Narrator and learnt her lines in just one night!"

"It was brilliant. Aoife enjoyed every minute of it and can't wait for more! I can't believe how much you achieved in such a short time and it was so well organised, visually fantastic and every child was treated equally.

I have to admit, I shed a tear at the end...it was superb. I was so proud of my girl...thank you for giving her such an amazing experience.

Bring on the classes!"

"My daughter has just been to a performing arts summer school with Darlington Academy of Performing Arts. and they put on a mini showcase of some of the things they'd been doing - OMG - it was amazing!! I really didn't expect to see such a result after only 5 days. It was visually amazing and the kids were thriving on what they had been doing. This is a new drama school and I was slightly sceptical about what it would be like BUT this was so professionally run. All I can say is - if anyone is looking for a performing arts school for their child, no matter what age, this is definitely one to go to."

Why Performing Arts?

Performing arts gives young people skills and confidence that will last a whole lifetime.
