The Razzamataz Theatre Schools Business is a part-time Performing Arts Franchise. The business attracts franchisees from all walks of life. The only thing franchisees need to have in abundance is a love of inspiring young people and a passion for performing arts.

Razzamataz was created with a simple dream, to make performing arts available to all young people no matter their background or circumstances.

Razzamataz Theatre Schools Business | Performing Arts Franchise

Razzamataz want to give children everywhere the chance to attend classes taught by experienced performers, who can give them the perfect introduction to the most wonderful industry in the world!  To do this, they have ensured classes are affordable, their curriculum is fun and current, and attending their classes is made as easy as possible.  

The business was established in 2000 and was backed in 2007 by BBC’s Dragons’ Den. Today franchising is allowing Razzamataz to achieve their dream, because it gives the finest talent across the country the opportunity to own and manage a successful business whilst following a tried and tested system.

It also means that their franchisees can set up their school on their own doorstep, and bring their passion, talent and commitment to the young people of the local area.

What would by my main roles as a franchise owner?

You will run classes for children aged 4-18 in singing, dance and drama and be engaged in all the varied activities of successfully managing your school.

What does a typical day involve for a franchisee?

Razzamataz Theatre Schools Business | Performing Arts FranchiseFrom Top Performing Franchisee Hayley at Razzamataz Medway: I’m in my home office by 9am to listen to voicemails and answer emails and to book potential students into taster sessions. I quite often have meetings with local press and advertising as well as meetings with my teachers.

I try to take Mondays off and dedicate a half a day each week to plan what’s next for my school in terms of what opportunities are on offer and what we would like to achieve. I love the flexibility the franchise gives me to be able to devote enough time to building my business whilst still looking after my little boy".

What Our Franchisees Say

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

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

The support from Head Office is fantastic and they are always there to listen and to guide you through. You are getting advertising/marketing ideas, contacts and systems provided for you that you may not have if you were to open an independent school.Amy Latchman, Razzamataz Rickmansworth.
