Since 1985, Theatre Studio has slowly grown into the school it is today. In 1990, Theatre Studio started to enter national competitions and examinations, and has achieved an unprecidented level of success in both, including 6 times winner of the youth section in the 'All England One-Act Play Festival', and once winning the adult category of the South West section with the critically acclaimed play 'Anywhere Is', written and directed by Artistic Director Suzanna Segura. Theatre Studio has also produced many main house shows at the Playhouse Theatre, such as 'The Wiz' in 1993, 'The Diary of Anne Frank' in 1994, and 'Rock Nativity' in 1995.

Since being formed in 1985, Theatre Studio has become firmly established as the counties Premiere Stage School. The school has become well known for feeding many actors, musicians and technicians into the main 'adult' productions at the Playhouse and many other of the counties theatres, and many students have gone onto train at accredited drama schools and become highly successful professional actors and technicians. Throughout the year, our students are entered into various competitions and festivals.

Our classes have expanded once again this year for the younger members of the theatre, and we now offer combined classes on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays for 5 to 18 year olds (previously 8 -18 years). We have also recently added our popular 'Theatre Tots' class for 3 - 5 years, which now means that, in total, we run 24 classes a week! These cover singing, speech, acting, dance, tap, musical theatre and many more.
