Friends, parents or relatives are not permitted to view weekly classes unless there are special circumstances and prior arrangement is made with the Showshack office. Parents are welcome to wait outside the hall if they are concerned about their child. 

Parent Viewings of all group classes are held at the end of every term. 

At our Weekend Theatre School, children perform an end of term Showcase   in the Medici Theatre at Weydon School. 

We also hold a dance competition once a year where trophies are awarded to the best dancer in three categories. We invite a professional dancer from outside Showshack to judge the competition.

How do I pay the fees?

We have an Online Booking System for all of our classes and payment must be made before you attend a class.

Please ensure you bring your booking reference email to your first class as we are unable to teach any students without advance payment. For all Private Lessons in Acting, Singing & Dance, a payment link will be emailed to you.

If booking one of our available Acting or Singing slots Online, payment will be taken when you book.
