Welcome to Drama Queens

Drama, dance, singing and musical theatre classes for children

Offering great classes at great rates, Drama Queens provides a safe and friendly environment for children of all ages and personalities to explore the world of drama, dance, singing and musical theatre. We run a varied and affordable timetable of classes at two locations, so please take a look around our site and Contact us if you have any questions.

Background

We are Dramatherapist Sally Orr and experienced West End Performer Debbie Spellman. We started Drama Queens over 10 years ago to encourage and develop children’s confidence, creativity and performance skills through our unique lessons, workshops and performance opportunities. While we provide training for children who would like a career in the creative arts, we are equally happy to coach those who just want to have fun and learn life skills. As we’ve said for years “it’s all about the journey”.

We provide a friendly environment enabling children to grow into their strengths. Fully supported by our expert pastoral care and tuition, each child is guided through an individual creative process. All of our teachers carry enhanced DBS certificates, are first-aid certified and have full insurance, and we provide licensed chaperones for all performances and workshops.

TIMETABLE

‘Edie had an absolutely wonderful time, making friends and unleashing huge reserves of creative energy. I had a hunch she would really enjoy herself but your high adult-child ratios, beautifully organised art activities and gorgeous drama performances really made her two days an excellent experience.'

Happy mum of Edie

'I thought the whole thing was of an incredibly high standard; the acting, the pace, the characters, the use of space, the costumes, the lighting, the sound effects. Everyone should be very proud.'

Praise for Punk Rock - 88 London Road

'I know that Drama Queens are really good at what they do and my children wouldn't go anywhere else.'

Mum of Theo and Coco

'It was a pleasure to work with Drama Queens Brighton and their fabulous children for the NatWest T20 Blast campaign - the kids were polite, professional and friendly.'
