The Mendip Performing Arts Academy is your local theatre school based in Somerset, with classes based at the Evercreech Village Hall, attracting students from Castle Cary, Bruton, Wells, Street, Glastonbury, Radstock, Midsomer Norton and surrounding Somerset towns, villages and cities.

The sessions are determined by age group, with the content and structure set specifically to engage with learners at that stage in their performing journey.  This ensures your child gets the most out of their time at the academy and has the opportunity to flourish.

We have a strong focus on collaboration and team-work, helping our students to build their confidence, make new friends and have fun during the sessions.

As well as the regular classes we also hold masterclasses on topics such as audition preparation and microphone technique to give your child the opportunity to hone their craft.

We also offer one to one tuition in singing and preparation towards the prestigious LAMDA Musical Theatre examinations. Please click here to find out more.

During the holidays there will be the opportunity to participate in extra classes and workshops.  Details for these are released each term.

The classes run during term time for a period of 12 weeks, with a half-term break dividing up the term.

We offer a £5 taster session for prospective students, and all of our available taster sessions can be booked here.  

Taster sessions are only available for classes that have space, and are for our Midis only remain open for the first half of each term.
