It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas

14th November 2017

It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas

Cambridge Seniors perform on stage

In many towns, up and down the country, the start of the festive season is heralded by the switching on of the Christmas lights. As the nights draw in, these illuminations really bring much needed winter joy.

Supporting many of these community events are students who attend one of the almost 50 Razzamataz schools across the UK. Bringing extra Christmas cheer, the children and teens perform songs and dances to entertain the crowds who are looking to get in to the yuletide spirit.

Denise Hutton-Gosney, MD and Founder of Razzamataz, explains:
"A big part of the Razzamataz ethos is to give back to the community and support local charity.  Not only does this benefit the friends, family and community who like to come and watch the children in action, it is also improving the performance skills of our students."

Over the years, the Razzamataz schools have established strong links with their communities and raised thousands of pounds for charity. Either through carol singing, collecting money while bag packing or taking part in sponsored events.

Denise adds:
"We already know that participation in the performing arts is good to encourage team work and empathy.  By performing in local events such as a Christmas Light Switch On or carol singing, the children can actively do something to raise money and benefit those in their area who need it. In today’s fast paced society, it is sometimes good to stop and look around and ask yourself what you can do for someone else."

At many of the Christmas Light Switch On events, the students have performed specially prepared festive pieces and have entertained the crowds with a mixture of their singing, dancing and acting skills.

During the classes at Razzamataz, the students will be trained in all three disciplines and will experience a wide range of performing arts genres from classic West End musical theatre through to street dance and pop singing.

Razzamataz Principals come from a wide range of backgrounds. Many are former professional performers, lots are teachers and the flexibility of the role attracts many parents who want to be able to spend school holidays with their children.

Razzamataz is part of the franchise sector so there is no requirement to have any experience of running a business or being in performing arts. What is needed is a passion to succeed, a strong work ethic and the ability to work well with both adults and children.

To find out if franchising is the right option for you, the Head Office run Discovery Den days across the UK where potential franchisees get a chance to meet the team, find out more about franchising in general and discover what it is like to run a part-time theatre school.

For new franchisees, Razzamataz has a special offer of just £7,995 (£2,000 saving) to launch a Razzamataz theatre school. Plus, until the end of 2017, Razzamataz will pay your VAT - a saving of around £1,600 and your first term management fee is free.

What Our Franchisees Say

The support and training we get means that we can get help on any aspect of our business. It has also been a fantastic and rewarding way of working, allowing me to continue to be there for the family while running my own business.Lisa Roberts, Razzamataz Rickmansworth


It was 10 years ago that I left hairdressing and for anyone thinking that it is too late to change their careers I would say step out of your comfort zone and just do it. I never thought I would be able to and it’s the best thing I have done and wished I’d done it years ago!Pam Dixon, Razzamataz Dumfries


I specifically wanted to go for a franchise, and in particular Razzamataz because of the support from Head Office and other Principals. This is a network of theatre school owners so you are in business for yourself but not by yourself.Alison Beveridge, Razzamataz Durham.
