What is Manna Academy/

Manna Theatre Company?

Manna Academy/Manna Theatre Company is the musical theatre area of our ministry. We provide musical theatre classes for children and adults in an encouraging and loving environment.


We believe it is not about superstars but stories, stories of individuals and their journeys to gain confidence and perform. We teach dance, drama, and vocal skills in our lessons. This all ends in their skills being put together to create musicals with a message.

"When I first came to Manna, it ignited a little spark of love for musical theatre. Now, almost 6 years later, it has grown so much bigger. I love to play different characters in shows and learn new skills every week."  - Cayenne 


"Manna is a great place where you can be yourself and develop you're love for the performing arts. Ever since I've joined I've really grown in my skills and made new friends."  - Elisa


"Manna is an amazing hybrid of guidance and freedom. I learned so much, especially about confidence and being engaging in public speaking. However, I was also openly encouraged to use my own talents, with the assurance that I would met with support in a nurturing, vibrant and close-knit environment. Becoming a teacher there was the icing on the cake, the team is the foundation of musicals that unconditionally lift children up and allow them to shine."   - Nadia


“I went to Manna and instantly loved it! In fact as soon as one session finishes I start looking forward to the next one! I love the atmosphere and find both the leaders and the other children so friendly and helpful.”   - Pupil

"Both my girls keep commenting how much love and kindness they get week at Manna and after our first term I can say they are loving it. Thank you! You and the team are wonderful!"   - Parent

What our students think

Frequently asked questions

How much does it cost to enrol in your classes?

Manna is a registered charity, everything we do is run on donations. We ask parents to commit to a minimum monthly donation per family of £20 set up as a standing order or via online donate page and click Monthly donation. Families unable to afford the minimum monthly donation due to financial hardship will never be excluded from attending the academy.

Do I need to buy a uniform?

Yes, we do ask that every child wears a Manna Academy shirt, trousers and hoodie. We also ask that children wear black ballet shoes during class.

What is a lesson like?

 Each Lesson will include a mixture of musical theatre, drama, dance, fun and confidence building exercises all wrapped dup in an atmosphere of love and encouragement.  

As a parent am I expected to do anything within Manna?

Though we won't ask you to teach a class for us (unless you're interested!), we do ask that parents consider enrolling on a registered chaperone course, as in order for your children to perform on the stage with us, they have to be under the care of a chaperone during the performance and the more chaperones we have the easier this task becomes.

Do you have a safeguarding policy and are your teachers DBS checked?

Yes we do! If you would like to find out more about our safeguarding policy please contact us. All our volunteer team are enhanced DBS checked and volunteer applications and personal references are obtained for them. 

Will I/my child get a chance to Perform?

Once a new location is established in a new area we aim to perform at least one musical a year.
