A message from Tom

What we have created at KTCo over recent years, is a performing arts hub that provides students with everything they need to prepare for a career in the industry, or purely a safe space to spend time with friends whilst engaging in a hobby that has a fantastic benefit on young peoples social skills, mental health and well-being. We may well be training the next big musical theatre stars, but it is the latter that makes me most proud!
