BSS Showbiz is not a franchise but is instead independently run by actors, dancers, singers and directors from within the arts industry. All of our staff are professional performers who enjoy teaching.
Whilst interactive training in musical theatre remains at the core of our work, we remain one of the few performing arts schools in the country producing shows every term, allowing our cast members of all ages to learn and perform at the same time. Recent performances (concert style) have included work from Glee, The Nightmare before Christmas, Peter Pan, Oliver, Fame, Jesus Christ Superstar and more.
Three times a year, our end of term performances are in the MAC Theatre, a purpose-built studio theatre within the Midlands Arts Centre, offering the same professional facilities and atmosphere as other professional theatres.
We run alongside normal school term dates with a performance for each group at the end of every term. During the summer holidays, we offer week-long workshops with a show created in just 5 working days!
We meet every Saturday with musical theatre workshops from 10.00am – 1.00pm for Senior Cast 1 (7 – 11 years), Senior Cast 2 ( 12 – 14 years) and Senior Cast 3 ( 14 – 18 years).
At all ages, our workshops cover Drama (improvisation and performance), Musical vocal training, and Movement - all presented in an enjoyable positive and professional working atmosphere.
