So You Wanna Be! is a modern, exciting performance training academy based at The Harlequin Theatre in Redhill, Surrey. We offer performing arts training to young adults aged 6-16, combining the country’s top Choreographers and Musicians with a wealth of current Theatre, Pop and TV stars. We run classes each weekend as well as holding specialist workshops and week long theatre schools during the school holidays.

Our classes and workshops are open to everyone, whether you are an aspiring performer or just want to come along and have some fun. Performing together as a group develops skills for life – confidence, communication, team working, courage, discipline, pulling-together . . . the list is endless. The experience is fun, challenging and rewarding.

We provide students with an opportunity to train and regularly perform under the guidance of the leading exponents of Music, Drama and Dance, in the country. This gives students real industry links and opportunities to work alongside a highly experienced faculty with a proven track record. All teachers are currently working professionally at the highest level, in the West End, TV and beyond.

So You Wanna Be! is brought to you in association with The Harlequin Theatre in Redhill, Surrey where the school is based. We are the only performing arts school in the area based exclusively in a Theatre which gives the buzz of rehearsing and performing on a real live stage with all its fantastic facilities. Our links with the theatre also open up other opportunities to perform in a wide range of local shows, pantomimes and other performances.
