Student numbers triple at drama academy’s Horsham branch

Ariel Drama Academy is thrilled to announce that (as of January) they will offer their unique service of providing FREE LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) exams to selected students within their Horsham branch.

Having opened in April 2018 with 20 students,  Ariel Horsham have tripled their numbers, which is testament to the standard of teaching and the friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Since opening, they have been involved in various performances around Horsham, including school fetes and, most recently, Sunday Funday in Horsham park, showing the local community what they do. This has proved invaluable to gaining students and spreading the Ariel ethos.

They have created such a community at Ariel Horsham, taking students to see ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’, ‘Come From Away’ and, most recently, ‘Waitress’ in London’s West End.

“The students love these trips and it is so wonderful to see friendships blossom as a result of coming to our Academy” – Principal Ben Simpson.

“We are so delighted that the Horsham Academy has been such a massive success, we are so fortunate to have such dedicated tutors, who work so hard to ensure the quality of the work is of the highest standard. We teach over 780 students across mid Sussex, and pride ourselves in being totally inclusive” – Nicci Hopson Ariel Director.

Ariel believes: “Perhaps the most exciting event coming up is our inaugural annual showcase at the New Bury Theatre in Hurstpierpoint, where the students will get to show the public the quality of work they can produce.”

Hot off the heals of performing a sell out run of Our House at the Hawth last week, auditions are now open for Bugsy Malone, which will be staged at the Capitol, Horsham next year.
