Staff

All our staff are trained professionals already working within the media business, we are vigorous with the safety of children and all staff are CRB checked.

Examinations

We at Rising Stars believe paperwork examinations do not reflect a true life experience of what an actor/actress would have to face in everyday professional acting work. Instead we create events that are a real life likeness to what an actor/actress would be subjected to.

Reports

At Rising Stars we believe in monitoring each students strengths and weaknesses so we can gain an overall picture of what they need to work on and which areas they excel in. A report will be issued at the end of each year.

Showcase & Coming Events

Once a year 'Rising Stars' operates the Rising Stars Showcase And Awards Night. Your child/children will learn a 3 to 5 minute acting piece, individually they will perform and compete in front of a panel of judges and yourselves the audience. Trophies, Medals & Certificates to be won and kept.
