As an organisation we are passionate about the future of the arts and culture sector, and how we can engage with young people to provide opportunities and a platform within our industry.
Launched in June 2021, Hope Mill Theatre School provides young people aged 2-18 with access to affordable Drama training in Singing, Dancing and Acting in the heart of the North West.
With a strong emphasis on fun, the training will not only develop your child’s performance ability but improve key life skill areas such as self-confidence and teamwork. Working with top industry professionals in all areas of the arts, the students will gain a superior education and training. From weekly classes to performance opportunities, Hope Mill Theatre School aims to encourage and elevate musical theatre talent whilst focusing on enjoyment and participation.
Each child’s journey of musical theatre training will be personal and unique:
We aim to provide a level of training which will enable those who are interested to pursue further formal training and careers both on and off the stage. There will be goals to achieve each term, performances and yearly reports, which will play a key part in each student’s individual journey and progression.
For those who simply enjoy taking part, Hope Mill Theatre School is a non-elitist, pressure free environment where young people can experience a multitude of benefits from their training.
