Stageworks creates the perfect outlet for the more obviously imaginative and outgoing, but also nurtures those with less confidence to reveal their creativity too.
We embrace the natural hunger that young people have to explore and create, by providing an ideal platform for each member to be themselves, then develop and grow.
Through acting, musical theatre training and productions, we develop their skills to create confident focused performers for Stage & Screen, and for life.
Our teachers are qualified and highly skilled specialists in their fields. Many teach performing arts in Schools, Colleges, and University, and perform professionally, but most importantly, they all have a wonderful affinity with young people.
