Running a business which helps children realise their full potential and express their creativity can be highly rewarding and now one of the UK’s most successful children’s activity franchises – Razzamataz Theatre Schools, is looking for partners in Australia.
The franchise is looking for ambitious individuals who are ready for the challenge of becoming country master franchisees or regional developers (as opposed to single unit franchisees at this stage).

Aimed at 4-18 year olds Razzamataz classes consist of an hour of dance, drama and singing and the curriculum covers the whole spectrum of the performing arts, from classic West End musical theatre to commercial street dance and hip hop. Razzamataz also offer classes for the pre-school market under their Razz Tots programme as well as the children’s party market under their Razz Parties offering.

Razzamataz now has 38 part-time children’s theatre schools across the UK and has established partnerships with First Choice, Thomson and Universal Pictures to take its winning formula into their resorts. The company has been recognised by The Stage newspaper as one of the top five part-time theatre schools in the UK. The company shot to fame when it won investment on the highly regarded BBC Television show for budding entrepreneurs — Dragons’ Den. Razzamataz is now acknowledged as one of the most successful companies to appear on the UK show so far.

Razzamataz students have seen success in many West End shows such as Les Miserables, Billy Elliot and We Will Rock you and have gained places in prestigious further education establishments.

The company has also established a link with the Top Talent Agency, the UK’s leading talent agency — to help in its search for the stars of the future.

Company founder Denise Hutton Gosney added: “We are now ready to roll out our proven business system world-wide and are seeking master franchisees and area developers to set up franchise networks in a wide number of countries. We have a particular interest in Australia where we know children’s after school and weekend activities that combine health and fitness with the ability to develop confident young people is in high demand. As well as opening their owned managed Razzamataz Theatre Schools, Master franchisees will be able to sub-franchise within their country and generate multiple revenue streams. Full support in terms of training, marketing and business systems will be provided by head office to help master franchisees and area developers establish and grow their business. Having a passion for the performing arts and working with children would be a distinct advantage but most important of all is having the right attitude and a determination to succeed in business. Successful master franchisees or area developers may well own another franchise brand or successful business within the children’s activity or sports coaching sector.

Razzamataz would be a fantastic brand to add to existing business portfolios like these.”
