Our superb team of teaching staff, who are all experts in their field, provide classes in Musical Theatre, Comedy & Drama and Film & Television for 6-18 year olds, and our Poppets Academy, dedicated to providing multi-disciplinary lessons for 4-5 year olds.

Every member of staff at PQA Scarborough are hugely dedicated to inspiring, engaging and motivating the young people who come to the academy, whether they want to simply gain confidence and make new friends, or whether they wish to go further into a career in the performing arts.

PQA Scarborough Dance and Drama for childrenAs well as these fun-packed, unique and exciting lessons, the students at PQA Scarborough will have many other fantastic opportunities to look forward to.

Masterclasses from West End professionals, stage combat experts, magicians and stage makeup artists (to name but a few!) will further the students’ experience at PQA.

Our students will also have the opportunity to perform in showcases both at our Academy Venue and externally, perform in London’s West End, have their very own film premiere in a Scarborough cinema, join our professional agency ‘Quirky Kidz’, and take part in free Trinity Group exams.

Our aim is to introduce the ethos behind The Pauline Quirke Academy, to demonstrate what we do and how we achieve our goals, how your children will benefit from our classes and, above all, to allow your children to get a flavour of The Academy.

  • Following a brief introduction the children are divided into age groups and get to sample classes in Musical Theatre, Comedy & Drama and Film & Television

(don’t worry if your child does not want to join in at this stage, we know that some will be shy, they can just watch and possibly have a go when they’re ready).

  • Parents are welcome to stay with their children – of course this happens with the younger groups but teenagers will usually not have their parents anywhere near an unpolished performance!

Musical Theatre classes ScarboroughDuring the classes parents can have some refreshments, a chat with the PQA staff, and really begin to learn what we are all about!

We would also encourage spending some time sneaking a look at your children during their sessions.
