2023 Our Year in Numbers

From newcomers to seasoned performers, our ensemble grew stronger than ever and our gratitude goes to everyone that supported us in 2023!

Class Acts:

We ran an incredible number of 990 individual classes from drama to contemporary dance and everything in between.

Affordable Access: 

In our commitment to inclusivity, we provided 203 free and reduced rate places in our programme for 2023 so that every child the opportunity to take part in the performing arts no matter their financial circumstances.

School Holiday Fun:

While the school took a break, we kicked things up a gear with 10 different holiday courses. We created spectacular musical shows for each course, inspired by classics like Calamity Jane to modern remakes like The Little Mermaid.  

The Ensemble Grew: 

Our ranks grew with a whopping 162 new students joining our cast to take to the stage for the first time.

Break a Leg:

We held 2 major performances, with a multi-class showcase in Spring for our Silver Jubilee and a Saturday School Christmas Show in December. Not forgetting in-class performances, holiday course shows and some of our very own students taking part in professional pantomime at the Catford Broadway Theatre!

An Important Anniversary:

Finally, in 2023 we celebrated 25 years of Montage Theatre Arts in Lewisham! It’s a privilege to serve this vibrant, diverse borough and we look forward to doing so for the next 25 years and beyond.
