Another pair of our friends, stars of TV and Theatre, Wendi Peters and Shaun Williamson, are also Patrons at Razzamataz Theatre School Leeds and are both very keen to support us and endorse everything we deliver.Wendi Wendi (left), known to many for her television role as Coronation Street’s Cilla Battersby-Brown, says  “I’m so thrilled to be a patron of such a wonderful theatre school which has great singing, dancing and acting classes. But at Razzamataz Leeds it’s also all about building confidence in the children and making sure they have a fabulous time.
With Jude and Phil at the helm, and their many years of theatrical and child teaching experience, the children are certain to thrive.
I look forward to hearing and seeing the kids progress over the next few terms but the main thing is that they have fun !!!”Razzamataz-Phil-Shaun-Jude-1-1024x729

Shaun, from BBC Television’s “Eastenders”, “Extras” and many more, met up with Principals Jude and Phil (right) and expressed his real delight at taking on the mantle of Patron for the School. He visits the School whenever he is working in the area.

“Jude and Phil are exactly the right people to head the Razzamataz Leeds School and I can only say how proud I am to have the role of Patron”, he said. “Being a school that actually cares about the children first is a terrific ethos. I just know they will be nurturing the talents and skills of some fine young people of Leeds over the years to come.

So come and join the Razzamataz Theatre School Leeds family to experience a range of styles from classic West End musical theatre to funky authentic street dance and pop singing. There are always lots of opportunities to perform for both boys and girls, from local theatres and festivals, and even to the glittering lights of London’s West End stage.
