Welcome to The Drama School.

We offer Drama Classes and Theatre Training at our premises in the heart of Exeter.

Our professional, friendly, encouraging and qualified staff, who have a wealth of experience and success, offer a range of courses that lead to recognised qualifications.

We believe that Drama significantly helps young people to develop as mature, confident and well rounded adults. Their self esteem grows, they become less insular, more outward looking, and they feel empowered to do more.

Our school offers courses leading to examinations and are open to everyone – from aged five to adult – from Preliminary Grades to Advanced Level. Subjects include Acting, Shakespeare Acting, Improvisation, Mime and Public Speaking and musical theatre.

The Drama School runs classes in Exeter and Ashburton.Courses are part time and fit around school and college timetables.

The Drama School students have an outstanding record of success over many years through high Exam Results. Students almost always attain Distinction and Honours, with the majority achieving marks in excess of 90%.

  • Festival Plays - Two of our Award Winning Acting Companies, Mezzamorphoses and Mezzalchemy, enter One Act Plays into The All England Theatre Festivals each year. Performing in local theatres gives our students valuable and exciting performance opportunities and experience.
  • Vanguard and LAMDA Exam Courses in Acting, Shakespeare, Verse and Prose, Spoken English and Public Speaking as well as Musical Theatre. Some courses for Pairs and some Solo.
  • Acting Companies - We run various groups for Acting Skills, Improvisation and Plays.
  • Audition Preparation - We offer one to one tuition for students preparing to audition for full time Drama Schools. 100% success rate.

“Our aim is to inspire our students through in-depth knowledge, practical participation, hard work and fun”.
