We’ve built an incredibly strong business in the County Durham, Wearside, and North Yorkshire area. It’s a business that has continued to grow, year-after-year, and one that not only survived, but thrived during the COVID pandemic. We’re incredibly proud of everything that we have achieved, and we want to help other aspiring business owners do the same.

What do we offer?

If you are as passionate about the performing arts as we are, and if you love working with children, then we would very much like to invite you to audition for a role in the Starz Drama School franchise family.

It’s a great franchise network to be involved in, even if we do say so ourselves! Yes, there is some hard work involved, but the rewards really do speak for themselves.

So, what benefits do we offer to you when you become a part of our team?

  • The Starz Drama School brand – we’ve been building our brand since 2014, and we continue to invest a lot of time, love, and effort into it as we grow our franchise network.
  • A comprehensive syllabus – catering for children from ages 4 to 18, and covering a range of different disciplines, our syllabus is specifically designed to help you succeed.
  • Passionate about working with children – our business has been crafted around our love of working with children, helping them to grow, and to become more confident in their day-to-day lives.
  • Tailored induction and training programme – we know that every child is different, as are our franchisees. When you join our team, we take you through an in-depth onboarding programme, where we cover everything you need to know about running a Starz Drama School business. We take into account your goals and your background, too – helping you to launch a performing arts business that is as unique as you are.
  • Our website – we work hard to maximise our website so that your customers can find us when they are looking for local drama, singing, gymnastics, or dancing classes.
  • Digital marketing – to complement our website, we use a range of digital marketing tools to promote Starz Drama School regionally and locally.
  • Business performance – we work with you to make sure that your Starz Drama School business is in tip-top shape. Together, we look for areas where improvements can be made, and we then put in place plans to maximise the performance and the potential of your franchise business.
  • Day-to-day operations – everything that we do on a day-to-day basis – from the big stuff to the nitty-gritty detail, is detailed in our comprehensive operations manual. This will become your ‘go to guide’, and it is there to support you whenever you need it.
  • Let’s get this show on the road! – once you’re up and running, you can start generating earnings right away. You can run classes throughout the year, and we are seeing demand growing constantly. We also help you to make sure that your marketing efforts, including any spend, are focussed in the right areas, helping you to be seen by the right people, and at the right time!
  • Flexibility – we work with school-aged children, so you will need to be able to deliver classes in the evenings and weekends. There is, though, still a great deal of flexibility as to how, when, and where you run your sessions. Your franchise business can fit around your family, lifestyle, and other commitments.
  • Profitability – the Starz Drama School franchise model has been designed to help you build a successful and profitable business in your local area. We offer low startup costs, high potential for repeat business and referrals, and all the support that we need to grow your business year after year after year… The only limit is your imagination!
  • Support – when you join Starz Drama School, you won’t just be a franchisee. You’ll become a friend, a member of the family, and an extension of our already successful business. Day or night, we are here if you need help.
  • Simplicity – as well as being enjoyable, we have designed our franchise model with simplicity in mind. We take away the headaches that come with running your own business, and leave you free to focus on what you do best – delivering great classes, awesome customer service, and having fun while doing it!
