The THRILL of being backstage at a show!


Every child should experience the THRILL of being backstage at a show!


For lots of children, performing on stage is a dream come true! But what about the time spent behind the scenes, in their dressing rooms & preparing for their performances? THIS is where the MAGIC happens!


Backstage is EXCITING, FUN, BUZZING with adrenaline fuelled, nervous & sometimes emotional children! We are experts in managing those emotions & keeping them energised, excited and re-assured that everything is going to be AMAZING and they are going to have THE best time EVER, which they do!!!!!


Dressing rooms are THE place to be! The camaraderie that the children feel & the friendships that they gain whilst supporting each other, keeping each other entertained during down time & sharing with each other a super charged experience backstage is second to none! For many children the experience & the friendships that they make will last a lifetime!




Backstage, children learn the importance of teamwork. From helping each other with costumes and make-up to making sure everyone is ready on time, the team effort behind each performance is vital. Children learn how to work together, communicate effectively, and support one another, skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.


It's almost show time! As the show approaches the children can feel the adrenaline pumping through their veins. The rush of adrenaline is what makes performing so exciting & it’s a feeling that stays with children long after the show is over! Witnessing their feelings of euphoria & pride when they hear the roar of the crowd & come running off of the stage fully exhilarated is quite special!


Performing can be nerve-wracking, especially for children that are performing for the very first time but it’s during these moments of uncertainty that children learn to overcome their nerves, to believe in themselves & to push past their fears. The confidence that children gain from plucking up the courage to take part in a show is ENORMOUS!!! From this moment onwards there is no stopping them!!


We work towards regular performances from small class performances to big West End stages, every performance has huge benefits to a child’s confidence! Start your child’s performing career & give their confidence a boost by joining one of our classes! www.rascals-uk.com
