Franchise performing arts schools creates exceptional opportunities for aspiring performers

Providing a platform for young talent to shine while offering invaluable insights into the professional world of performing arts, a franchise theatre school network is opening doors to a world of possibilities for both students and franchisees.


With months of preparation, gathering the best names in the industry, on Monday 8th April, students from 13 Razzamataz schools across the UK came together in a unique experience that combined an incredible performance opportunity in London’s West End with the chance to enjoy a day full of insight into the professional world of performing arts.


Razzamataz Performing Arts were thrilled to introduce the cast of The Next Step at the iconic Shaftesbury Theatre. The gala performance gave these talented young people the chance to showcase their skills across the three disciplines of dance, drama and singing as well as discovering more about their potential in the performing arts industry.


Aside from getting the chance to perform on a world class stage, the dedicated Razzamataz Head Office team spent many months in conversation with professional artists to lead masterclasses, talent agents to scout students for their books if they are able to take new clients and attendance from the most prestigious leading performing arts colleges including Arts Educational School London, Emil Dale, Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, Mountview and Laine Theatre Arts.


Prior to the evening performance, hosted by Matt Pagan, a member of Britain’s Got Talent-winning group Collabro, the students engaged in a series of workshops. These sessions not only primed them for the show but also offered invaluable insights into the realities of a performer’s life, guidance for college auditions, and a deeper insight of what their next steps could be. As a result, students not only learned the technical aspects of their craft but also gained a deeper understanding of the industry’s nuances and demands, preparing them for success both on and off the stage.

“Investing in a Razzamataz franchise means investing in more than just a business; it’s investing in the future of aspiring performers,” says Denise Gosney, MD and Founder. “By providing exceptional opportunities like this Next Steps showcase, we set our local performing arts schools apart from the competition. Our commitment to offering insights into the professional world of performing arts not only enhances the experiences of our students but also solidifies Razzamataz as a prime choice for franchisees looking to make a meaningful impact in their communities.”


Leaving a lasting impact on Razzamataz aspiring artists were Georgia Morgan,

direct from Moulin Rouge in the West End and Australia, actor and vocal coach Adam Pettigrew who has played many roles including Boq in Wicked (West End) and Princeton / Rod in Avenue Q (UK Tour),  West End star, vocational college tutor and world-wide competition adjudicator, Laurie Scarth and Casting Director Felicity French from Cameron Mackintosh.


“This was a spectacular showcase of young talent from across the UK,” says Casting Director Felicity French from Cameron Mackintosh. “Some seriously impressive performances and every single student looked like they were having the time of their lives performing on a West End stage.”


Razzamataz is proud to serve as a vital bridge for aspiring performers, helping make the transition from part time to full time training, and ultimately prepare them for their professional journey. Through the comprehensive curriculum and highly skilled and experienced teachers, students gain essential skills in singing, dancing and acting, while also building their confidence. The emphasis on performance opportunities and industry connections also provides valuable exposure and insights.


As Razzamataz approaches its 25th anniversary, the franchise network is looking to further expand with dedicated investment in new territories, aiming to bring the transformative power of performing arts education to even more communities across the UK. With a proven track record of nurturing talent and fostering creativity, Razzamataz continues to be at the forefront of the industry, offering franchisees a rewarding opportunity to make a meaningful impact while building a successful business.
