Welcome to Chestnut Theatre School
We offer Drama and Singing classes for ages four to adult in the heart of Stockport. Our classes are for all abilities, no experience needed. We welcome everyone in our friendly, warm Chestnut way.
Here at Chestnut our professional teachers help each pupil to learn the craft of singing and acting, our classes are focused on the learning and development of each person and we showcase our work and what we have learnt at Christmas, which gives everyone their chance to perform and be part of a show.
We teach different elements of the subjects thoughrouhly, covering a wide range, in drama some of the themes we work on are clowning, acting for screen, monologue, duologue, comedy, physical theatre, stage combat, mask work, puppetry, movement and many more.
In singing we focus on solos, group singing, harmonies, volume control, microphone techniques, performance techniques, voice projection and so much more.
Chestnut's ethos is all about positivity and progress, nurturing pupils and creating a welcoming, supportive group within classes, which naturally enables people to make friend and build confidence whilst all the time having fun.
Each pupil is SO important to us and we strive to help bring out the best in all our chestnuts, we encourage each pupil to develop in their own way and show what they have to offer, whilst building their confidence all the time, everyone is different and we definitely embrace this.
