How NPS came to be ...
As performers ourselves, we have attended 100’s of auditions and know how nerve-wracking and disheartening they can be. You learn the lines, often travel far and all to be in the room for a few minutes, rarely gaining any feedback about how you performed. As teachers in many performing arts colleges around the North, we wanted to provide something extra on top of your training to tackle this issue.
After witnessing the talent that we have here in the North, we decided to do something about the lack of opportunities there are for you, our young performers. That is why we provide different West End Masterclasses throughout the year lead by the performers from the shows themselves. Our aim is to best prepare you for what you want to do, whether that be an audition for your school talent show, an audition for a west end show or just enjoy learning a new routine from a show you love, giving you opportunities to learn from the best in the business and all without travelling to the South. Take a look at our events page for the upcoming Workshops and Masterclasses, we have something for everyone.

"You two have a really great thing going on here and seeing how well the Kids receive it must make it all worth while. I really wish I had something like this when I was younger. You're inspiring loads of young people to push themselves, you're giving then experiences they wouldn't have had otherwise. Who knows, maybe some of them will end up in town one day."
