Shining Stars ASN Theatre School is a theatre school for children and adults with additional support needs. It provides members with workshops in; Drama, Musical Theatre, Dance and Drama Therapy. It also allows members to socialise and gain valuable skills such as; confidence building, social skills and building relationships.

We are in desperate need for our own building as the needs of our members vary from mild and moderate to severe and complex. Some members are registered blind, and the hall we use at the moment is not meeting their needs.

Shining Stars ASN Theatre School has just received Makaton Friendly status, only 4 other establishments in Scotland have received this status.
