Boost confidence and nurture creativity with Kaleidoscope’s popular Dance Classes, Drama Classes, Musical Theatre Classes, Youth Theatre, Film & TV Acting, LAMDA Exams, Holiday Clubs and week long Summer Schools.

We place a lot of emphasis on developing social skills like active listening. We teach children and young people how to speak clearly and confidently in front of others. Our team are trained to help children develop their emotional intelligence through arts activities. Because of all this, children who come to Kaleidoscope tend to be more confident, more articulate and more at ease in all sorts of social situations.

Our classes are the highlight of the week – a lively learning experience!

We’ve received many compliments about our classes last year, here’s just one:

“Hi Deirdre,

Firstly thank you so much to the whole Kaleidoscope team for being so brilliant this whole time, and delivering such fun and engaging sessions throughout this lockdown/homeschool era. It has been a real highlight for Mia & Jasmine, and having these ‘live’ sessions has definitely given them a boost!!”

Parent of Mia and Jasmine.

If your child would like to join us, the first session is a TRIAL SESSION you can complete a REGISTRATION FORM and one of our team will be in touch with you.

All Classes are led by our experienced team of Drama, Dance and Musical Theatre professionals who have all enhanced DBS certificates.


Chaos by the young people of Kaleidoscope

Lewes Con Club

Thursday 22nd & Friday 23rd June, 2023

Door time: 6:30pm, Start time: 7:00pm

A boy brings another boy flowers.
A girl has tied herself to a railing.
A boy doesn’t know who he is.
A girl worries about impending catastrophe.
A boy’s heart falls out his chest.
A butterfly has a broken wing.

Bouncing through physics, the cosmos, love and violence, the characters find order in the disorder of each other.
A search for meaning in a complicated and unstable world.

And also - Fragments - a selection of short scenes by Kaleidoscope Youth Theatre.

Kaleidoscope aim to create a space where our young people can grow in confidence
and thrive, whilst building their skills, and working creatively with other young people.

Suitable for 12+. Contains some strong language.

Peter Pan

Our recent whole school production of Peter Pan was a huge success. Over seventy young people performed to packed audiences at our partner school, Priory in February 2015. 

Our inventive show included Mesmerising Mermaids, Plundering Pirates, thrilling flying sequences and a huge crocodile on wheels. Our most ambitious show to date! 

We are now making plans for our next big show, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe in 2017.

Arabian Nights

In February 2013, we performed our visually stunning show, Arabian Nights. Sheherezade’s tales were brought to life by a cast of ninety children. Our innovative production included Physical Theatre, Clowning, Farce, Arabian Dancing and Shadow Puppetry. Every child in Kaleidoscope was involved in the show - from our Infant Drama and Dance Classes, who performed a story about a lion who was tricked by the animals, to our Juniors who performed Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, up to our talented Youth Theatre who performed a hysterical rendition of The Beggars Tale. The production was written and directed by our artistic director, Deirdre Daly and choreographed by Beth Dale, with lots of creative ideas added in by the children in all our classes during the devising process.
