Richard Dale in the new studio

'An independent theatre school with a passion for professional 'triple threat training'. With West End workshops every year with performers from shows such as Shrek, We Will Rock You,  Grease, Charlie and the Chocolate factory, Legally Blonde, 9 to 5 and X Factor and with industry professionals leading the way, you will soon be the performer you want to be.  NO babysitting! No tea breaks! No other school in the area can offer this level of training. We have students enrolled from schools all over the South West including Plymouth College, Colyton Grammar, Collumpton, QE, Isca, St Peters, Maynard, Exeter School, St Lukes, West Exe, Clyst Vale, Taunton, Torquay Grammar and many primary schools. 


With over 120 students enrolled but class sizes kept small, students get the individual attention they need to succeed in their training. Many Students have been awarded places at top drama schools including Arts Ed, Italia Conti, Performers, Alra, GSA and Birds to continue their professional training. Come and see what all the fuss is about..






​​​​With Richards extensive performing credits and an excellent understanding of 'triple threat' musical theatre vocational training, this is a wonderful opportunity to experience a taste of professional musical theatre training in the South West.
