Every December in the UK, theatres are filled with the classic British tradition of Pantomimes; a slapstick play, usually based on a fairytale with bizarre characters and plenty of audience involvement.
In line with the best specialist training schools around the world, Wellington’s Performing Arts and Music curriculum focuses on developing performers in three streams; Music, Dance and Acting, with the belief that “Triple Threat” (as it is called) performers have a better understanding of themselves and the Arts and that each discipline is intrinsically interlinked with the other.
