Andrew Curphey Theatre Company recently won Art's Organisation of the Year at Liverpool City Region Culture and Creativity Awards 2024.


Now in our 15th year we are super excited for our 2023/2024 season of classes in Widnes, Runcorn, Warrington and Frodsham.

Headed by Andrew Curphey (Actor & Theatre teacher) from Widnes and his team of talented performing arts tutors, the children and young people develop their skills in performing arts, musical theatre, drama, dance and singing. Whilst developing performance skills, participants also gain confidence and have lots of fun. Each year the students take part in many exciting live performance opportunities. 

While building an excellent reputation and offering excellent value for money, ACTC continues to have the added support of Marjorie Barlow (Gary’s Mother) who is the company’s Patron. Marjorie often attends the productions and shows her support!

Andrew said: “Our teaching and learning centres around the notion that children and young people are provided with a safe environment to develop and learn. They are given a platform to be who they are, showcase their talents, and encourage their confidence. The essence of the company has always been, and will forever be, that all of the children and young people have fun and create life long memories.”

In 2024 Andrew was a Semi-Finalist on series 17 of Britain's Got Talent. He had the opportunity to perform LIVE on ITV.

In 2018 Andrew was commissioned by Halton Borough Council and the Mersey Gateway to create and direct a performance piece that was presented to Her Majesty the Queen and the Duchess of Sussex. It was a huge success and he was so lucky to have the opportunity to talk with both Her Majesty The Queen and Meghan about the performance. The performance and their responses whilst watching were captured by the World's media. It was featured on Sky News, BBC, ITV, ABC (America), Good Morning America, and in the UK press and across the world. 

We offer evening classes in:

  • Performing Arts

  • Musical Theatre
