Manic’s Oliver Workshop

On Saturday Manic’s Matt and Emma spent the morning working with Kings Theatre Youth Theatre Juniors leading an Oliver Musical workshop. The session took place at the Salvation Army Hall. 39 happy children between the ages of 7 – 12 years old (10 boys & 29 girls) arrived at 10am ready for a morning of singing and dancing.  

The morning was spent choreographing one of Oliver’s big musical numbers. Manic’s Emma had a great morning, “We had a great turn out and created a dance to the well known favourite ‘Consider Yourself’. The kids had plenty of ideas and were singing along word for word! The workshop concluded with group performance of their hard work and lots of happy smiling faces!” The choreography created in the workship will be used in a performance soon by the King Theatre Youth Theatre group with most of the boys and girls playing as orphans/fagin’s gang.

Manic have a team of trained tutors ready to run workshop for any companies or theatre groups needing expert choreography or performing arts lessons. In all workshops, Manic share their industry knowledge and wide experience and all for a great price!

If you are looking to arrange a workshop, please feel free to get in touch –

Let Us Help Promote Your Business

We have been booked to produce and perform a Flashmob to increase publicity and awareness for an exciting event in May! 

Obviously we can't say where, what or when as the whole point of a flashmob is the element of surprise. But we CAN tell you that we are very excited and feel that this could be something more companies could use when boosting their promotions for an event, product or campaign! 

Read more to see how a Manic Flashmob could enhance and elevate your future publicity needs.

A flashmob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual act for a brief time and then quickly disperse. 

This is a great publicity stunt that can attract much attention to your forth coming event, campaign or product. The more performers we use the bigger the impact. Our flashmob team would wear normal clothes and mingle with the shoppers on the high street for example. Then suddenly burst into song and dance, removing their coats to reveal costumes or branded clothing. This revelation adds impact to the performance and develops its presence. We suggest that the team then distribute your leaflets or samples etc to the public who have gathered round.

Each of our flashmob's would be created individually to you the client and we would consider your exact needs. Our performance piece would reflect your company and the feel you desire for your publicity campaign. Each flashmob we produce we recommend being around 5 minutes long and include both song and dance with vibrant choreography, costumes and live vocals. Directly followed by leaflet distribution. 

As mentioned the more performers involved the bigger the impact. Obviously we understand that your budget will play a big factor in your decision to use a Flashmob or not and to help you work out what you can afford we have compiled a price per performer structure (available on request) to help you easily work out your requirements. 

For more information and a chat about your ideas and how we can help call Nicole 07977478565

Choose from the following party themes

West End Wonders
Add a bit of theatrical sparkle to your bash 
with glittery jazz hands and west end moves. 
All big shows and musical films covered.

Pop Party

Learn the moves and sing the tunes, 

A pop party covers all or one of your 
budding stars favourite chart toppers!

Disney Magic
Bring the magic of one of your child's favourite 

Disney tales to life with a fun filled 
exciting fantasy themed party.

Tiny Tots
No child is too small! We start at the beginning 
for these tiny tots with music, nursery 
rhymes & stories all of which stimulate baby brains.


Pirate Party
For all the boys and girls who would like to
walk the plank. Our Pirate parties are full of
 swashbuckling fights and fun.

Your exciting Manic Stage Productions themed dance party will last 2 hours and is guaranteed to be fun for boys and girls of all ages. Every party is hosted by a talented Manic dance expert who will first entertain the children with party games to match their chosen theme. Everyone will learn to strut the confidence catwalk* and be taught a fun energetic dance routine to their favourite party, chart or themed song. There will be a short break for birthday cake and drinks before "Show Time" where the children get sprinkled with magic star dust and become a disney princess, pop star, nursery rhyme character or musical theatre wannabe and step into the spot light to perform to family and friends at the end.
The children will love being centre stage when the cameras flash and the parents clap!

*For our pirate themed party the catwalk will be altered to walk the plank and the dance routine will incorporate basic stage fight techniques
