Musical Theatre Classes

Combining the three disciplines of singing, dancing and acting, our musical theatre classes offer great opportunities to improve skills and perform in great shows.

We offer the broadest range of musical theatre classes in the area and have eight musical theatre groups, each split according to age. Each group participates in at least two performances each year. 

My son has been going for over 4 years. The teachers are amazing and my son thinks of them as his second family everyone is so supportive of each other. Amazing just Amazing!!!!!

Do something amazing

Chesterfield Studios Musical Theatre groups start from reception age right through to adulthood, building confidence and performance skills in a dynamic and friendly atmosphere

We can accept new members into the Musical Theatre classes at the beginning of each new term. 

Your first class is FREE. 

Places are very limited across all of our classes due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

Last year we produced 16 different musicals and concerts at the Pomegranate Theatre and our own Rose Theatre as well as other local venues.

 

We also participated in shows at Derby Theatre and Her Majesty's Theatre in London's West End.

I only joined  just over a year ago and I’m leaving again now for university, but this place is amazing. The training you receive is one of the best I’ve ever experienced and the friends you make for life!   I’ve met some of the best people here whilst having the most fun!
