What makes our Colchester Performing Arts School Unique? Theatre schools for adults and young children in Colchester - Free Taster Session > 

We stage two performances each year* when family and friends can see the students perform singing, dancing and acting in a showcase or full blown musical. Our recent shows performed to sell out audiences at Colchester's Mercury theatre include Little Mermaid, Alice In Wonderland, Peter Pan, Seussical The Musical, Dracula Rock Show.  
Our 2019 musical production was 'WIND IN THE WILLOWS' and we are currently a major musical at a local theatre for the coming year:) 
We teach our students to Act, Sing and Dance and learn how to Perform which is the core part of our business, but it’s really much more than that! It’s about finding something you LOVE, building CONFIDENCE in all aspects of life, showing that it doesn’t matter if you make a mistake and just ENCOURAGING you to go for it!! Performing with us is like being part of a BIG HUG! Each child, no matter their ability or talent, is encouraged to do well and in turn, encourage their Theatricool friends to do well too! 
We have a VERY HIGH RATIO OF STAFF TO STUDENTS, we can therefore nurture the 'not so confident ones' to develop at their own pace. 
We perform TWO SHOWS PER YEAR, this allows our students to showcase their work in a professional theatre. 
We use PURPOSE BUILT STUDIOS to ensure our students get the very best experience and training. 
We really are one big team at Theatricool each student is a star in our eyes. They all get a chance TO SHINE! 

Our Facilities Are Probably The Best In The Area Dance and drama schools for children and young adults in Colchester - Free Taster Session > 

The facilities provided by a drama or Musical Theatre School can have a dramatic effect on a students experience and perhaps even influence their decision to continue classes or not. Some schools hold classes in conditions which may be cramped, too cold in winter or too hot in summer. All too often facilitilities can be lacking in the basics for a quality drama and dance school such as mirrors, sprung floor, music system and ballet barres. 
Theatricool classes are held at our own studios in central Colchester, Theatricool Studio in Belle Vue Road CO1 1XA and our new Studio at 3 Chandlers Row CO1 2HG 
facilities include: 
Lovely dance floors 
Changing facilities 
Sound system 
Ballet Barres 
Rehersal Rooms 
As well as offering some of the best local facilities, Theatricool also carries all relevant insurances, operates a privacy policy and child protection policy. All tutors are enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) checked by Essex County Council and lead tutors are qualified to BA(Hons) in Musical Theatre degree level and/or are industry professionals. It is important our parents and guardians know they are entrusting their children to a professional school with dedicated and professional tutors, operating in an environment condusive to learning all three Musical Theatre diciplines, acting, singing and dancing and most of all 'Having Lots Of Fun' in the process. 
Life's a drama and we love it!!
