Welcome to Abdabs Youth and Community Theatre


Abdabs is a non profit making Youth & Community Theatre part time stage school group based in Witney, Oxfordshire, working at a semi professional level with professional performance arts coaches.  We don’t only work on productions, we consider that our students deserve the best training and as such, we take pride in being a performance arts company that engages people not just at the drama level.  We work on all aspects of the performance arts arena including acting, voice, singing, movement, dance, physical theatre, script work, technical production such as sound & lighting, filming, stage combat and backstage roles and techniques.  Students are given opportunities to be given responsibilities in roles such as Student Director, Student Assistant Director etc and to join the Abdabs team, which in turn enhances their CV.  Statistically over the last 12 years we have been opened, 90% of our students gain at least an A grade in their Drama GCSE.

Working with ages 4yrs to Adults we provide structured performance training, which builds a rounded knowledge of theatre, film and studio skills.

Skills our students learn and take away from their sessions are:  Creativity, Confidence, Problem Solving, Perseverance, Focus, Non-verbal Communication, Receiving Positive Constructive feedback, Collaboration, Dedication, Accountability.

Fees start from £5.10 per session depending on age group, contact us for more information on fee costs and for a Taster session.

What we did this Summer 17:

A company asked for a few of our students to be used in a modelling shoot as part of their rebranding, they had great fun taking part in this.

Abdabs are proud to be a supporter of Witney in Blue - Antibullying campaign.

Some of our students have been involved in filming with CBBC with Jedward and had an amazing time.
