Thanks for visiting!

Vocalize Performing Arts Academy is a unique company & examination centre based in Redditch, Worcestershire.  We are the only Academy in the area to provide group workshops in Drama, Music & Dance and offer individual professional Vocal and instrumental training.  Our workshops and rehearsals are held at Tudor Grange Academy Theatre, Woodrow Drive, Redditch, B98 7UH.  Our members travel from Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Solihull and Birmingham.  

Vocalize is a community organisation founded in May 2010 by Tracy Anne Wright (Owner, Principal & Musical Director).  Tracy is also a full member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians.  We have an enthusiastic team of tutors who strive to provide a structured, professional, exciting experience to all our members, promoting confidence, teamwork and social skills for life.  We also invite visting professional workshop leaders to offer 'one off' specialist training sessions.  We are one big family and are always happy to welcome new members to join our group.  We aim to offer many varied experiences to our members. We have previously joined 'Blake' on two of their tour performances.  We have also performed in many varied venues including shopping centres, band stands, schools, theatres, residential homes and we particluarly enjoy raising money for numerous charities.

We offer weekly skills workshops to our youth theatre group on a Monday evening for ages 4+ yrs, staging a fully licenced annual production with costumes, professional lighting and sound and regular Showcases for family and friends. Vocalize Company is open to anyone without a formal audition, we only audition for Principal solo roles at the start of a rehearsal period.  Once committed to a showcase or production, we ask for full attendance to all rehearsals or students may not be able to participate fully in the final performance.

Vocalize has recently registered with 'Class Talent' who have 30 years experience of working with adults and children alike, both mainstream and special needs, and welcome  performing groups for ‘once in a life-time’ experiences.

We joined Class Talent for the first time in December 2016 to tread the boards at Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End, the home of the rich and famous, using the same dressing rooms as the Phantom of the Opera cast.  Our members participated in workshops and rehearsals during the day and performed live on stage on the evening, we made lasting memories which will stay with our children for the rest of their lives! 


Vocalize Performing Arts Academy is a registered Examination Centre for Trinity College London.  Our students are regularly entered for Graded Rock & Pop and Musical Theatre examinations


  Our mission:  

To offer Quality, Affordable Performing Arts Tuition to all ages & abilities.
