About Us

Upstagers has been providing a creative outlet for youngsters in the Ilkley area for over thirty years. We have a great team of teachers providing fulfilling, fun and beneficial classes to our next generation of Upstagers stars. Our students get the most out of their experience by building confidence and developing communication skills, whilst also having a lot of fun and meeting new friends. We're proud that many Upstagers alumni have created successful careers in theatre and other forms of performance.

Classes are available for six year olds up to young adults. All classes take place at the Upstagers Barn opposite Ilkley railway station.
