What we do

The Northern Prep Squad provides audition and drama school preparation workshops in order to help young people best prepare themselves for a career in the performing arts. We aim to boost confidence, give constructive feedback and provide industry knowledge as well as bringing the West End professionals to the North through our Masterclasses.


Improve your audition technique and put your skills to the test with our mock audition workshops.



We bring the West End to you! Learn directly from the professionals who have worked on your favourite shows.

Why we do it

As performers ourselves we know how nerve-wracking and disheartening auditions can be, and as teachers, we have witnessed the talent that we have here in the North. So, we decided to do something about the lack of available opportunities. This is when NPS was born, with audition preparation workshops to put your skills to the test and improve your confidence. We will also be bringing Masterclasses to the North. Instead of emptying your pockets travelling to London we bring the professionals to you to teach routines and songs from your favourite shows. We aim to help young people of all ages and abilities experience professional expertise and feel confident entering that room. After all, PRACTISE MAKES PERMANENT!

I am so excited about the launch of Northern Prep Squad. It’s the training I wish I’d had as a child as it allows trainee performers to get a true insight into what it takes to make it in the industry. The ethos of the company is to really hone the talent and craft of its students. So many training academies are more like youth clubs, entertaining children for a few hours at
the weekend. Northern Prep Squad is so much more than that. It’s for Children with real talent and real passion who want to put in the hard work to get to the next level. Training like this is so sparse in the north and I’d sign up myself if I could.

I was very impressed with the energy and enthusiasm of your teaching staff which clearly transferred to the students. To set up a drama audition workshop takes a lot of hard work and passion and this clearly shows. My daughter loved every minute and I’m sure she will be attending more workshops in the future.

Principle at Stagecoach

Northern Prep Squad is a great idea for those students at Stagecoach who want to take their training to the next level. It allows them the opportunity to continue with their training with us but then homes in on those skills needed for auditions for work and/or drama school entry. It's great that Northern Prep Squad are
working alongside schools like Stagecoach in order to help train young children and adults in getting where they want to get in the competitive world of performing arts. It’s a great idea run by a very talented and dedicated team.
