The Bath Theatre School team work to exceptionally high standards to ensure we offer the most unique and comprehensive musical theatre experience in the area – but most importantly we make sure there is an element of fun in everything we do! The best evidence for this is the feedback we receive, here are a few comments we received:
Bath Chronicle Review – Guys & Dolls
You would be forgiven for thinking this challenging show based on the Damon Runyon stories, with a 50 strong cast and an average age of 10, was the product of the School being in existence for many years.
But only in its second year, they have produced a show to wow audiences young and old, with an enthralling set and lighting which would not have looked out of place on the professional stage.
The children aged 7 to 16 rose to the challenge of the intricate, imaginative choreography which was energetically executed. The ‘Luck be a Lady’ and ‘Sit Down You’re Rockin the Boat’ numbers were particularly memorable. The scenes in Guys and Dolls can often seem dry, however this cast’s well paced, engaging and comedic dialogue whistled by, alongside the harmonious and strong principal and chorus singing.
Of particular note, Tim Firmin and Bethany Pozsonyi were well cast as the charming rogue, Sky Masterson and a prim and proper Sarah Brown. Equally Louis Moore and Emily Best provided great comedy as the commitment phobic Nathan Detroit and long suffering Adelaide, all with mature performances well beyond their years.
The production team should be commended for producing a show which can only be described as a marvel.
Bath Chronicle Review – Honk!
This family musical comedy, based on Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘Ugly Duckling’, won an Olivier Award back in 2000 and Bath Theatre School deserves an award for their production. Considering the theatre school was only founded 9 months ago and includes children who had never set foot on stage before, you would think these bright sparks had been tap dancing since they were tots … great choreography and burgeoning talent, this is a fun family night out.

Despite not knowing the show we were truly blown away by the quality of the whole production. The set, costumes, singing, dancing and what great fun throughout. It was outstanding and one of the best family outings we have had for a long time and we are still talking about it almost a week later. Thank you Bath Theatre School!
The show last night was amazing ! Thank you all so much for all your great work and all the fun you have given over the term. It goes without question that my daughter loves drama and would preform all day long if she could, but she equally loves BTS….. When I asked her why she particularly liked BTS over other clubs she attends, she paused and thought for a while and said, “I don’t know really, I think it’s because it feels like a family to me, they are all so lovely“.
So thank you all again for making it such a memorable experience. Have a great break and we’ll see you in September !

Wow!!! Bath Theatre School is simply amazing. The teachers really do go far more than the extra mile. BTS really does put any other acting schools to shame. The professionalism was stunning – the stage sets and the costumes were superb. Everything about the end of year show was simply outstanding – I can’t praise Tom and his team enough. Thanks again guys!
Many many congratulations on the success of Guys and Dolls over the weekend, it was a superb show and yourselves along with the children should be so proud. The tears from last night have only just stopped flowing !!
On behalf of my daughter, her mum and myself may I say thank you for all your hard work and effort. Since joining she has become a different person in attitude, confidence and nature. She is still on cloud nine after the production as I’m sure all the kids are and she can’t wait to get back in September for the start of the new term and year. I hope you all have a well earned relaxing summer break and we look forward to many more highs with BTS.
It was an incredible show – well done to you all at BTS for orchestrating such a brilliant production. We were thoroughly entertained and impressed by all the performances on stage. But it was down to your talents as a Theatre School that brought out the best in the children and must have taken such a lot of effort and hard work to produce such a slick show -well done!
Bath Mums Article Feedback
Both my daughters have done so well since we joined Bath Theatre School just a few months ago. Their social confidence and presentation skills have grown – such great life skills for any child to have! I highly recommend you try out Bath Theatre School – we’re so glad we did!
We would like to congratulate you all again on the schools performance of Honk. It was clear in the way the children acted on stage, how confident and happy they were. They were all a credit to your teaching skills. Our Son has had a fantastic year with you, his acting, singing and dancing and confidence has grown immensely. Every Saturday morning he is up at the crack of dawn, with excitement in the fact that he his coming to your school, to do what he enjoys. He was devastated last night that the show and term had come to an end, and the only consolation we can offer is telling him that he will be back again in September. Wishing you all a happy summer break, you have all earned it. See you all in September, relaxed and raring to go!
