The Company





PERFORMERZONE was originally created in 2003 by  Hove-based working professional  William Pool to appeal to all lovers of theatre and performing arts. Training and performing opportunities are offered to local people of all ages - from 5 years old adults, but always under the guidance of experienced professional performers with West End and TV experience who also teach at the best London Drama Academies. The aim is to develop performance skills in a fun but professional environment!

This is achieved through a series of workshopsworkshops.html, celebrity master classesworkshops.html, summer schools and performance opportunities in public theatres.shows.html



Our most recent production FAME - THE MUSICAL was a big hit for Performerzone at the Sallis Benney Theatre (Brighton University) with 5 performances from Dec 19th - 21st.





Our regular sessions, workshops and classes in all performing arts lead to public performances in theatre all around Brighton. In 2008 we produced the new stage version of the Disney musical sensation HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL at The Old Market, Hove, in April, and then FAME - THE MUSICAL from December 19th - 21st at The Sallis Benney Theatre, University of Brighton, Grand Parade, Brighton BN1. With The Theatre Workshop we produced ANNIE in March 2009 at The Barn Theatre, Southwick - with a total cast of 90 children aged 5 - 16 years old and then in August GUYS AND DOLLS for our SUMMER SCHOOL production.
