About OUr schools
Voted Best Leisure Product in the British Youth Travel Awards in 2016 and 2018, and rated "One of the top ten drama trips in the UK" by School Travel Organiser Magazine, Theatre Workout is the leading workshop producer in the West End with unrivalled partnerships with major West End productions, working with over 8,000 students a year from around the world.
Theatre Workout Academy offers public summer schools which anyone can join, plus we're developing a network of after-school clubs, Saturday schools and holiday programmes in schools, and with theatres and community centres, developing partnerships in Greenwich and South-East London, with plans to expand across London within the next couple of years.
Until then, our bespoke programmes are already available to groups across the UK and around the world on request, and we offer free lessons by email and on our growing YouTube channel.
We teach a range of performance skills rooted in creativity and imagination, inspired by our experience working in collaboration with dozens of major West End productions, and grounded in our extensive collective experience working in theatre, film, television and radio.
What makes us different?
Many Stagecoach, Pauline Quirk Academy, and Theatre Train schools across the UK have come to Theatre Workout for teacher and student workshops – we train them!
37 of the world’s best productions have chosen to work with us including Disney’s The Lion King, Wicked, Hairspray, Joseph, the Wizard of Oz, the Sound of Music, and Shrek the Musical!
