Welcome to Acting Up Newcastle Gateshead!

Acting Up Children's Theatre School was established in 2001 and provides quality Performing Arts education in Gateshead and Newcastle that is complementary to, yet independent of school studies. Our theatre group activities include endeavours similar to those of a theatre company and whilst we are aware that some pupils will wish to pursue a career in Performing Arts in which we support and encourage, our primary concern is to harvest the potential of every child. Our success is evidenced by the significant improvement in confidence, articulation, poise, creativity and communication that Acting Up pupils typically display.
