''At the heart of the community''

Founded in 2007, by Nicole May and Alex Purves, Mayhem Theatre Arts provides a multi purpose Performing Arts Studio, offering first class tuition for children and adults in all aspects of Performing. In 2017 Nicole took on the running of the school, and Alex stepped aside to be a trustee of the organisation and continues to regulary offer his help and support.

Mayhem have a range of classes in all disciplines of the Performing and Creative Arts. These classes are designed to stretch and challenge our students, introducing them to new skills and encourage their own creativity in order to be skilful and dynamic performers. We welcome anyone from complete beginner to advance; all ability levels and ages are catered for.

Classes are taught in small groups to ensure maximum individual attention. Our teachers are highly qualified, experienced and passionate about their work and know the importance of developing confidence, communication, fitness, self-awareness, and passion; key skills that will last a lifetime.

We believe that everyone should enjoy a creative outlet to express themselves, and our classes offer just that!


”I joined Mayhem Theatre Arts in 2008 looking for a new theatre school. Lots of friends recommended to me that I should try it out. They couldn’t have been any more right. As more of a singer both Alex and Nicole nurtured me in both Acting and Dance and gave me opportunities to practice this in their original productions and shows. I am so grateful to both of them for giving me that tuition that got me into drama school and the continuous support as I go through the industry. I can’t thank them enough. I will always support them as they’ve supported me! If you want to be given the best start and support in performing arts, please don’t hesitate to try Mayhem!” – Mayhem Student
