Welcome to Stage Door Studio Theatre Workshop

Stage Door Studio Theatre Workshop led by Anne Redfern and Janet Fletcher was opened in May 2000. It aims to stimulate young people to gain confidence, be creative, develop communication skills and have fun in the world of theatrical arts.

Since then Stage Door Studio Theatre Workshop has been renowned for setting high standards in all aspects undertaken. Setting achievable goals for students aged 5+ to adult.

Life is never dull and with an ‘open door’ policy anyone attending will benefit from the warm and cosy atmosphere that exists. A disciplined and respectful approach is required along with a high motivated attitude being the ‘key’ to achieve outstanding results.

Stage Door Studio Theatre Workshop besides staging musicals each year also takes part in many charitable events and prides itself on raising an enormous amount of money for various groups since it began.

Our aim is to allow people from all backgrounds and personalities coming together to have a great deal of fun and also learning skills that will help to ultimately change lives!
