Learn With Us
Our Drama School offers a wide variety of services to all of our students, no matter what their skill level may be. From a weekend drama club to summer holiday workshops or even private tuition, we’ve got you covered. We understand that each student has a different style of learning, and we aim to accommodate all of our students. Take a look at all of our service offerings below.
Saturday Drama Club
We're looking for enthusiastic young people to join us for weekend drama club sessions.
If you're searching for a fun challenge, this is for you! Build your confidence, make new friends and maybe find a new hobby.
What we stand for
Upstage Drama believes in being more than just a kids and young adults acting class in Lancashire. Our aim is to instil children with the confidence and self-belief to go on to achieve whatever they want in life whether that’s in the entertainment industry or not.
During our drama lessons and workshops, based in Chorley, Upstage pupils further develop their social skills in a friendly and safe environment where they make life-long friends and most importantly - have fun!
Everyone is actively encouraged to be creative and develop as individuals rather than trying to hide what makes them unique, which in turn allows them to understand the diversity of our world.
Upstage Drama is somewhere children find the support and encouragement they need to grow and young adults find their true voice.
Get TV or stage work
Pupils of Upstage Drama have gone onto LAMDA, Rose Bruford, RSAMD, East 15, Italia Conti and Arden Theatre Schools as well as Winchester, Oxford, York and Manchester Metropolitan Universities.
Members of Upstage Drama are working professionally in theatre and TV including Heartbeat, The Forsyte Saga, The Ward, Waterloo Road, Doctors, Holby City, Vincent, Ideal, Coronation Street and Oliver Stone's Alexander the Great.
