Saturdays

The School of Theatre Excellence is The Midland’s leading stage school, performing arts school and theatre school all rolled into one!

SOTE Saturdays are brand new for 2019 and offers musical theatre training for ages 6-14 every Saturday Morning in term times.

Students study an all round musical theatre package consisting of musical theatre ballet, jazz, choral singing and acting.  Within the MT package students receive 1 to 1 singing lessons, with regular performance classes where students perform solo songs in front of their group, or on many occasions to the whole school and parents.  Many students come to SOTE with no previous experience, which we very much encourage.

SOTE Saturdays is designed for nurturing talented students who have an enthusiasm for acting, singing & dancing and love to perform.  To join we encourage students to take a FREE TASTER SESSION where you will train with our current students. At the end of the day we will have a short chat with both you and your parents to discuss everything that you have learnt and what you would like to achieve by joining the school.

Our next FREE TASTER SESSION in on Saturday 11th May contact us for more details.

SOTE Saturday session time is Saturday 09.30pm – 1.30pm (Ages 8-14)

Lessons are:
Company Dance Class (all Levels)
Choral Singing Class
Acting, Script Work & Improvisation
Musical Theatre Jazz & Tap
Regular Performance Classes

We are thrilled to have been approached by leading Musical Theatre Producer Bill Kenwright to provide 2 Childrens Choirs for the No. 1 UK Tour of Joseph at The Birmingham Hippodrome in July.  There is a set criteria for age and height but any of our students who fit the criteria will be given the opportunity to be part of this amazing production, enhancing their confidence and providing them with valuable future life skills.

We are pleased to have students appear in professional theatre & TV productions. Students from SOTE have appeared in:
