My daughter looks forward to drama class every week. She has grown in confidence and I am delighted with the progress she has made. Cartwright drama builds social skills and is a wonderful outlet for creativity. It's fun, welcoming and extremely rewarding!

My son adores the drama classes, previous to joining Cartwright drama studio he went to another well known drama class and even though he enjoyed the classes he felt it was too big and didn't have the personal touch of Cartwright drama, a massive thanks should go to Tracy who makes every child feel special and unique. The classes bring out a child's confidence and allows them to be who they are. The classes have a wide variety of talent and it allows the child to appreciate another persons gift. The classes are also structured so they are learning different acting techniques and gives them confidence to explore their acting abilities. Joe has gained confidence in acting and also confidence as a person. I think every child should  have a go at the drama classes it's not  all about becoming a budding thespian it's also about meeting new friends and having fun.

My daughter started the Cartwright Drama Studio when it first opened its doors.  She had never done any drama before, apart from lessons at school, but felt that she wanted to try it.  It has been a fantastic experience for her.  Tracy is the most lovely, encouraging person.  She has created a safe and friendly place to put yourself on the line and have a go at acting and improvisation.  My daughter loves the sessions and her confidence has grown tremendously.  Tracy and Jim are so well connected to and respected in the industry, and this benefits the Studio with the chance for masterclasses with well-respected Northern actors.  We’re so lucky to have this in Chorley.
