Passionate about the Arts?

Looking for a business opportunity where you get to work in an inspiring and thriving sector? Choose your own hours and be your own boss but receive all the support and training you need to run your own part-time theatre school. We have a great mix of franchisees – some have performing arts backgrounds and some don’t. What they all have in common though is passion, drive and determination to build a thriving business of their own!

Michael French, Principal of Razzamataz Barnet: 

“Having worked in musical theatre for 12 years I needed to move on, but I wanted to stay in the same industry which I love. I would recommend a franchise business to anyone who is looking into opening a business but has no knowledge of how to do it.”

Razzamataz Theatre School was created in 2000 to make performing arts available to children and young people to offer the current trends in both musical theatre, commercial pop and street dance.

Razzamataz children's franchise

Razzamataz offers exceptional training in dance, drama and singing together with exciting opportunities to perform as well as welcoming guest workshops with industry experts such as Ashley Banjo from Diversity and Broadway and West End star Kerry Ellis. The classes cover everything from traditional West End and Broadway musicals through to street dance, pop singing and acting for camera.

The classes are open to all children from the ages of 2 to 18. The Razzamataz ethos of creating an environment where every student should have the opportunity to be energetic, to gain confidence and to make friends, whilst having lots of fun is evident in all the schools across the UK.

There are almost 50 Razzamataz schools, creating not only a place that positively impacts young people’s lives, but also interesting and rewarding careers for the franchisees who become the schools’ Principals.

A huge part of the network’s success is down to the highly tuned operating systems that have been refined and developed over the last 18 years of business. Razzamataz works with experts in the fields of PR & Marketing, Social Media, GDPR, Child Protection and many more.

Kayleigh Redford, Principal of Razzamataz Newcastle: 

“I’ve learned so many new things that if I had started out on my own, I would have really struggled to understand them all.”

Want More Flexibility?

Razzamataz Franchisees fit their businesses around their lives, not the other way around. Whether it’s taking the stress out of doing the school runs every day or working part-time elsewhere, they each find the routine that suits them.

Be Your Own Boss

Want to take all the school holidays off to be with your children? We have many parents within our network who are finding a good work/life balance.

Claire Blower, Razzamataz Mansfield and Nottingham

“I launched in September 2011 when my daughter Holly was six and Freya had just turned one. The best aspect of being my own boss is flexibility. Although having structure is important the majority of the work can be done at any time. If things don't go according to plan I can always be there for them. If they are poorly or something special is happening at school, I can be there - without having a boss to answer to.”

Razzamataz franchise cost

2018 special offer and payment terms options

 Here's how the standard price is made up:

  • £9,995 franchise fee plus VAT 
  • £5,000 working capital 
  • £4,000 initial marketing launch budget

Here's what we're going to do: 

  1. We'll take £2,000 off the cost of the franchise fee, which reduces it to £7,995 plus VAT 

You can pay this instead of £9,995 plus VAT and then pay the standard monthly royalty of 10%


      2.  We can waive that £7,995 plus VAT entirely, and in return you choose to pay a 20% monthly royalty (instead of 10%) for the first 3 years

This means you can start your amazing new Razzamataz business with just £9,000 (of which the main franchise banks may lend you up to 70%)
