Performing Arts in Taunton and Axminster

Our Performing arts workshops are developed to offer creative exploration into devising and performing

for all 4-16 year olds.

'Stimulating and creative' 
'I enjoyed every second of it' 
'Highly professional and extremely enjoyable'

There is no better way to develop your ability to respond positively and efficiently to new and unexpected situations. Learn to communicate clearly and effectively. Develop empathy for others and a deep level of self-understanding. We all want our children to become confident, versatile adults with good networking and team-building skills and the Performing Arts help you achieve all that and more.

We would say the best thing about Make is making great friends and lasting memories.

Most of all it's fun, and the skills you develop happen without you even knowing it!

Our students have gone on to study at Mountview, Rose Bruford and NYT and Make Theatre CIC (our own theatre company for 16-25's) but also, just as importantly, non-theatre based degrees such as biomedical science, aeronautical engineering and Primary Education.

The Performing Arts are for all!

Carnival season is upon us and we will be appearing at Taunton and Ilminster Carnival.
