The Players Academy 

an independent performing arts school for 4-19 year olds

​Offering children aged 4 to 19 the chance to explore all aspects of musical theatre through its inspirational teaching of singing, drama, dance and movement. The sessions run on Saturday mornings at Martin Way Methodist Church halls, two minutes from David Lloyd Raynes Park.

4-7 year olds join our Minis group, it's the beginning of the adventure: imaginative, confidence boosting sessions incorporating singing, drama and dance with the emphasis on fun.

Age 8-19s join the Spots, Stripes and Elites groups and sing, act and dance working in separate age groups and all together for at least some of their sessions each week. Combining the age groups for some of the session really helps children bond and become a team, the benefits of which can be seen when they are on stage as a Company performing in their shows.

Once a year Players put on a full scale musical production in a theatre with a live band, scenery, costumes, sound and lighting, all the students take part in this show.


Players also offer the opportunity to perform on stage in Disneyland Paris every third year.
