About Us

  • The Wright Theatre School strives to nurture Creative, Confident, Kids by giving them a solid foundation in performance based skills. We use modern Scripts, Songs, and Choreography to create a Showcase each term around a common theme.

  • We know first hand how that can transform and empower a growing young person – who will undoubtedly transfer those skills to all aspects of their life.

    While they have fun and explore their creativity, students will also learn teamwork, problem solving, and communication skills. Join us as we cultivate imagination, poise, and empathy through artistic self-expression.

    Whether your child is one whose everyday life is a Musical, or one who hasn’t found their confidence yet, The Wright Theatre School is the right theatre school 🙂
