About ŨŜ

Nothing beats the thrill of performing, and our aim is to create a fun, friendly and social environment to enable everyone, regardless of age or ability to achieve this experience. If you dream of a career on stage or simply just want to meet new friends, UpStage will enhance your confidence and give you the opportunity to do so. More importantly, an introduction to the performing arts initiates the development of invaluable life skills in children.

At UpStage we are proud of our open-door policy, whether you are looking for a hobby, are starting out in the world of theatre or just want to keep fit, we are a great platform for children and adults alike.

UpStage was established in 2001 to inspire young people and encourage self-belief through performance. Our classes will help nurture, motivate and develop skills in all aspects of theatre, including singing, dancing, acting and performance. Over the past twenty years membership has flourished and many memories have been made.

We have direct connections with West End professionals, both on and off stage, enhancing the UpStage experience, offering invaluable opportunities. Our performances are produced and staged at professional theatres giving each performer the chance to shine.
