Theatre Cats began in Burton on Trent in January 2008. Thanks to our fun, energetic and inspiring drama classes we have gone from strength to strength, and in January 2012 we will be opening two new schools, COALVILLE and DERBY.
The classes are aimed at all children between the ages of 5 and 16. Our goal is to inspire confidence and self-esteem through our classes, which include drama, dance, singing, movement and musical theatre, all delivered by our team of professional teachers and performers.
Your first class is FREE, so you can come along and see how much fun we have without having to pay a penny! Classes are just £7 per session thereafter, and discounts are also available for two or more siblings attending.
If you are interested or have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Q: Do I need to be able to have a really good singing voice?
A: No, just a desire to make music and have fun. A lot of what we will be doing will be choral where many voices are singing together to create a beautiful sound.
Q: Do I have to sing on my own?
A: No. Not if you don’t wish to. Some of the songs will have solos but these will be given to those who want to sing on their own.
Q: What is harmony?
A: Harmony is when you have a number of ‘tunes’ that are sung together at the same time. It comes from the Greek verb ἁρμόζω (harmozo) which means: “to fit together, to join.”
Q: What is unison?
A: This is where several singers are singing the same melody together.
Q: Will I have to audition to join?
A: No. Auditions can intimidate people and we want our Glee Choir to be welcoming for everyone.
Q: How much will it cost?
A: Your first class is FREE! Subsequent classes will be £5 per week, however, if you pay for 4 weeks then you will get the 5th week free! Existing Theatre Cats students and their parents it will cost just £3.00. If you introduce a friend to Glee Club and they enrol after their free class you will then get your next class half price!
