Showshack is a vibrant organisation that offers local children a supportive, enthusiastic and creative environment for their development in the performing arts. We aim to bring the experience and influences of our professional staff to our students, encouraging their skills in the Performing Arts, nurturing and refining their singular talents and developing their confidence and self-esteem as individuals.


Showshack has been helping children gain confidence, make friends and build essential life skills for the past 20 years. Whether it’s improving articulation, learning to work as part of a team or even speak in front of a crowd, our classes from age 2-16 can improve these skills through acting, singing and dancing.

The skills gained from these disciplines are proven to help not just in performing but in many other aspects of life helping even the shyest of children grow and gain in confidence. See testimonials below.


Full vocational training can be obtained from leading institutions including The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD).  Some classes can lead to the Governments accredited Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) providing points equivalent to GCSEs and A Levels.

Showshack was established in 1995 by Pauline Thomson, and enjoys a truly excellent reputation in its field.

‘As a Showshack “Newby” I had no idea of the size or scale of the performance until I watched my daughter. The show was totally amazing and inspiring and the talent was phenomenal!’

‘You have given our children the most wonderful opportunity to be a part of something amazing. I have seen such a change in my son’s self-esteem and confidence since he joined Showshack.’

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience you gave Poppy. We have seen her change from a very shy little 6 year old to a confident performer. It has helped shape her future in so many ways.’

You should all be incredibly proud! We were amazed by the professional quality at Showshack.’
