Currently the answer to this question is no, not really, but its getting better………..

Centre Stage began life in 1971 and has been staging musicals every year since then. The musicals have changed but the aims are the same now as they were all those years ago: to develop young people through the practical involvement in Performing Arts, to build confidence, self-esteem and maturity but most of all to give an enormous sense of belonging to a company of like-minded people which enhances their performances but also their lives.
Many former members have continued training at full-time schools, Bristol Old Vic, Mountview, Guildford School of Acting and many now have successful careers in theatres in the West End and nationally.


Centre Stage is a registered charity which has become a formidable cultural force within Exmouth and has been showered with accolades and acclaim but... there is always one complaint after every performance ...".what a pity we couldn't hear all the words!"


To achieve the very highest standard, Centre Stage musicals need many things, we have to hire or buy sets, lighting, musicians, costumes, props and mics, the list goes on and on and our expenses are high.
