Bath entertainers launch new theatre school
A trio of well know Bath entertainers have teamed up to form the new Bath Theatre School which opens its doors next month to offer a comprehensive musical theatre experience to children in and around Bath.
If a youngster in your family is itching to make an early start in the world of show business they can have a free taster session before joining. All they do is go along to any of the Saturday morning sessions and they can try it out for free.
The Saturday morning Bath Theatre School offers children aged seven to 16 coaching in drama, dancing and singing, while giving them the opportunity to socialise and make friends in a fun learning environment.
What makes the new theatre school distinctive is that it offer nationally recognised qualifications in Musical Theatre from Trinity College London as part of the standard teaching. The teaching and syllabus will be carefully constructed to support and develop life skills that are relevant to all children, in areas such as team work, communication, creativity, leadership, public speaking, confidence building, co-ordination and much more.

What's more, if your child is a keen performer these qualifications can support a career in theatre, so this unique offering provides a superb range of learning opportunities which all children can benefit from.
As well as learning general stage skills and receiving master classes from guest artists who share expertise in areas such as stage combat, stage make up and specialist dance genres, the school also puts on a whole school production. This year's production will be Honk! which will involve a fantastic range of characters and costumes.
Bath Theatre School has been founded by Tom Bright, Adrian Millard and Holly Rose. Most recently they successfully directed, choreographed and production managed the technically challenging and expensive show The Wizard of Oz at the Theatre Royal in Bath.
Adrian said: "We were impressed and overwhelmed by the wealth of talented youngsters who came forward to audition, so we decided to use our passion for theatre to set up Bath Theatre School. After overcoming an unprecedented number of challenges with The Wizard of Oz, we saw what a superb team the three of us made and the Bath Theatre School team was born".
Holly said : "With most families having to spend carefully and with Bath having a high number of children's theatre groups, our overriding goal was to offer the most diverse theatre experience available, whilst still being more competitively priced. Through offering nationally recognised musical theatre training and a huge range of other things, we have managed to raise the bar significantly on children's theatre groups in Bath".
Adrian and his family are no strangers to performing with his wife, Paula, being Head of Performing Arts at The Royal High School, while his three children, Ava, Sophia and Ruby, have all performed professionally. Most recently Ava has been accepted in National Youth Theatre, Sophia was part of a one year UK tour for The Sound of Music with Connie Fisher, and their youngest Ruby performed in the Bath pantomime. Similarly Holly and her two sisters are all seasoned performers while her Dad supported Status Quo and T-Rex at the first Glastonbury Festival.
And what makes this a truly family affair is Tom and Holly will be getting married next summer having met while performing together, and Adrian will be Tom's best man.
Bath Theatre School starts on Saturday September 8 and runs on Saturday mornings from 9.30am to 12.30pm at Beechen Cliff School.
