WOAPA's Big Family Fun Day

The Get Creative Family Arts Festival is a UK-wide festival of art events which are designed with families in mind.

Organisations from around the UK are putting on arts events which are suitable for families.

The Family Arts Festival is part of a bigger programme, supported by the arts industry and funded by the Arts Council England, which aims to support organisations in providing high quality events for families. 

WOAPA is delighted to be part of the GET CREATIVE Family Arts Festival.

On Saturday 15th October 2016, we will be opening up our classes for children and their parents to take part in our singing, dance & drama sessions.

You don't need any previous experience as our tutors will show you what to do on the day - all you need is bags of enthusiasm and energy!

We also have a class for children with learning disabilities to join in.



We look forward to meeting you.

WOAPA is a Theatre School for children aged 4-16 years, which operates in Henry Box School Witney, at weekends during the standard academic term.

Our classes are led by experienced and enthusiastic tutors whose skills in working with young people enable your child to develop at his/her own pace, and encourage them to reach their true potential.

Providing quality tuition in the three disciplines of Singing, Dance and Drama, we promote a positive environment - where students have fun as they celebrate their individuality and achievements.

Working as part of a team, students are encouraged to be creative and value the experience of working closely with others towards a common goal. Skills are developed and refined, enabling students to become multi-disciplined, all-round performers.

WOAPA students develop in and benefit from….

• Increased confidence

• Growing self-esteem

• An expanding imagination

• Creativity

• Co-ordination

With no entry auditions or previous experience required, whether your child dreams of a career in the performing arts or simply wants to make new friends, WOAPA will boost their confidence … and they'll have loads of fun!

At WOAPA, we take pride in providing much more than other drama schools in the area, by going that extra-mile for our students. We often arrange and assist our students to appear in local productions, professional stage shows and on television and film. We regularly organise theatre trips and often have industry professionals visit our school, to provide master-class sessions & workshops such as Commercial Dance, Audition Skills and many more.

You’ll also find, when comparing like-for-like, WOAPA, as an independent local organisation, is less-expensive than other similar, nationally franchised theatre schools.
