Why we are different

At Direct Theatre School we believe that we are just that little bit different.

Our class sizes are limited, so every child is treated as an individual and encouraged to develop at their own level.

Performance is at the heart of what we do. All of our classes involve production opportunities and we stage at least six productions each year. More often than not we write our own scripts, this ensures that each child is actively involved, with a character part and a specific role to play in each production.

We are constantly looking for new ways of working, giving pupils new and exciting performance opportunities. Our own inspiration is based on our experience in professional theatre. At Direct Theatre School we like to push our own creativity and that of our students, exploring different styles of theatre from straight plays, physical theatre, and improvisation to site specific productions and film.

We offer new pupils free trial classes for up to three weeks. So you can come along, experience our classes or production groups first hand and see if Direct Theatre School is right for you!
