About Players Drama School


The Players Drama School was founded in 1994 by Debbie Carter, to teach children acting, dancing and singing and the confidence to express themselves both on and off stage.

The School has gone from strength to strength, and Debby regularly has over one hundred pupils enrolled in her Saturday and Wednesday evening workshops.

Several former students have gone into professional theatre, including Helen Modern in BAD GIRLS, MESSIAH, WIRE IN THE BLOOD, amongst others.
