Theatrix response to Coronavirus, updated 2 December 2020

We wanted to keep you updated and let you know that the following is the case, in response to the most recent government guidelines:

  1. All Theatrix classes and individual and duo tuition have stopped in person for the time being.
  2. We are working hard to get back into the theatre once we are confident that it is safe for everyone and we are ready. We plan to bring classes back gradually rather than all at once
  3. Theatrix classes continue to be Re-Zooming (online, using Zoom)
  4. Individual and duo tuition will not resume until we are safely back at the theatre
  5. Trinity College exams for 2020 were cancelled, we will start work on new exam material in due course.

We continue to keep in touch with all our current and new parents via email to ensure they are updated.

We are very sad that this situation is continuing. We miss teaching our wonderful students in person. However, we recognise that these important and necessary measures are for the common good and we hope with all our hearts that we shall all meet again in person before too long.

Please keep safe and well, look after each other and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Rosemarie Partridge, Theatrix Principal and Rachel Barker, Theatrix Administrator

We’re very proud of Theatrix Alumnus director Simon Godwin whose career continues to go from strength to strength. Anthony and Cleopatra is currently showing at the National Theatre, find your nearest cinema to watch it on 6 December. You can watch the trailer for Timon of Athens which is at the RSC in Stratford-upon-Avon next year before Simon takes over as the new Artistic Director of Shakespeare Theatre Company in America.

You can read Michael Billington's review of Timon of Athens in The Guardian.

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.
