Bournemouth based Direct Theatre School offers a variety of drama classes for young people aged 4-18 years. We introduce children to drama, give them an opportunity to develop acting skills, provide exciting opportunities for them to perform in large scale theatres and offer teaching and guidance all the way through to drama school.
Thank you for your support with my drama school auditions
I'm so grateful for all your support with my drama school auditions. I honestly couldn't have done it without your help and guidance.
I owe such a lot to Direct Theatre
Just to let you know I've gotten in to the 3 year BA Hons Acting at Rose Bruford. I owe such an awful lot to everyone at Direct Theatre. When I think about the first session with you guys to the person I've become now, it's astonishing!
Different from other groups
Direct Theatre is different from other groups because you learn and have fun at the same time. I really enjoy the performances and have made lots of new friends
Part of a team
Since joining Direct Theatre I’ve learnt that acting is just not about showing off, its about working as part of a team
Fun drama games
It’s really exciting and you get to make new friends and play fun drama games. I like dressing up in costume for the final performance
Pete and Juliette care!
Advice is always on hand in every and any aspect. Pete and Juliette care!
Teaching is first class!
Since joining DT my daughter’s confidence has grown enormously, she feels she can be entirely herself in a non judgmental environment. The teaching is first class!

One of my Son’s best days
When the kids came out for their curtain call at The Lighthouse they were all beaming. A year later and my son still talks about it as one of his best days.
What sets Direct Theatre a part from every other dramatic group is their productions. Just as one project is complete another one is born and unfolds, stretching minds and resources, pushing creativity to the limit.
Direct Theatre School is totally original and we do something different each year
Lots if individual attention
Direct Theatre School is unique and you get lots if individual attention.
Fun and friendly
It’s fun and friendly and has helped me to develop my confidence as well as my acting.
Fits in with my philosophy
Direct Theatre School fits in with my philosophy of arts for all, it’s not a business that creates a few prima donnas. I like the emphasis on stage craft, personal development, imagination and fun.
