About Razzamataz Theatre Schools Limited

Razzamataz Theatre Schools

Company Overview

Razzamataz provides affordable part-time performing arts training for children and young people throughout the UK, also giving them access to some of the most talented performers through specialist workshops and classes. Razzamataz uses theatre arts within small class sizes to nurture a child’s confidence and self-esteem, all while making sure they are having a lot of fun.

Our business was established in 2000 and was backed in 2007 by BBC’s Dragons’ Den. Today franchising is allowing us to achieve our dream, because it gives the finest talent across the country the opportunity to own and manage a successful business whilst following a tried and tested system. It also means the franchisees can set up their school on their own doorstep, and bring their passion, talent and commitment to the young people of the local area.
