Voiceworks was established in 2014 after summer projects that revealed a real need for accessible performing arts in the local area. We had a real desire to provide local children with high standard, musical theatre performing experience through intensive summer courses leading to a full scale musical.
We have treasured memories of treading the boards and are excited to have three full scale productions of Annie, Oliver! and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat under our belts with extremely talented cast and production teams.
We are happy to say we are growing and have a separate holiday projects in drama and musical theatre and more recently a weekly stage school so there's always something for everyone.

Our Saturday Schools give students the changes to receive regular tuition in the discipline of singing, acting and dancing. We have classes available from ages four to sixteen years old, the classes are further split into age appropriate groups and our led our fantastic team of staff who are not only experienced tutors but talented performers.
Our junior school uses imaginative ways to develop confidence, communication skills and creativity through game, story telling, music and movement. In the main school students are taught a wide variety of essential skills and techniques within each theatre discipline of acting, singing and dance.
We place emphasis on both individual and group development within a fun environment giving students the vital skills they need for both the stage and everyday life.
Auditions for our yearly summer production take place during Easter. The project lasts for two weeks which includes a week of rehearsal and a production week in a professional performance venue.
Voiceworks previous productions have included Annie (2015), Oliver! (2016) and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat (2017). Details of our 2018 summer production will be released soon.
Along side our summer productions we also run a week long summer school for up to fifty students. Throughout the intensive five day programme the students experience a variety of drama, music and dance. We hope to improve confidence, communication, musicality and rhythm in a fun and active way. This non-auditioned project allows all students the chance experience the thrill of performing and reap all the benefits that can come from it.
