Our focus

At Act Too we believe that learning should be fun. In fact it is the first of only two rules we have:

1. Have fun!
2. Have focus

This ethos runs through the whole Act Too family, which our students find nurturing, kind and caring.

We also believe that nothing beats experience and practice when it comes to performing and so we offer at least three opportunities every year for our students to perform live in public in professional theatre spaces across the region.

Creative Holiday Workshops

Act Too are delighted to offer our students a unique creative theatrical opportunity twice annually with our Easter and Summer holiday workshops, where we develop, write, produce and perform a full brand new musical theatre show in just one week.

Our students enjoy script and song writing as well as creating scenery, props and effects. These are always incredibly popular events.

'Act Too is consistently the best place we have ever sent our daughter to, To see the growth in confidence and her performing ability is incredible. Thank you!'

'The first and the best! Act Too is the only place to offer this excellent balance of fun, theory and practical training in our area. Our son can't wait for Saturday mornings...'

'Thank you for making our daughter so welcome. She tried two other performing arts schools before coming to you and this is the first she has wanted to stay at.'
