Theatrix is the St Albans based performance art school. Established in 1980, it provides young people from the age of five and adults with opportunities to learn a wide range of theatre, speech, drama and communication skills.  

Teamwork, enjoyment and the development of strong friendships characterise the Theatrix ethos. We offer weekly classes in drama, acting, speech, playwriting and musical theatre for groups and individuals, after school and on Saturday morning, using the excellent facilities of the Abbey Theatre, St Albans, and led by our  team of dynamic young professional actor/teachers. You can start classes or tuition at any time.

Students have frequent opportunities to perform on the main and studio stages at the Abbey Theatre.

We also specialise in auditions for the National Youth Theatre, Drama School and University degree entry, and many of our students go on to careers in the theatre, film and related professions.

Students take Trinity College exams recognised within the National Qualifications Framework. Consistently our students achieve pass rates in excess of 98% - mostly achieving a merit grade or above.
