Join our supportive team for a rewarding role that uses your creativity to build a successful business that fits in with your lifestyle


Our story began in 2014 when founder Rosanna Sloan, was becoming frustrated with other drama classes charging high prices for mediocre experiences with limited performance opportunities. Light UP delivers value for money drama classes through four kinds of groups, which progress in commitment level to support young people to shine on and off the stage.

Now we are entering our next exciting chapter, sharing our low overhead, high-profit business model with you, for you to create your own successful business to ensure that more young people Light UP the stage!

As a franchisee, you can control when and where you work, whether you want to teach the classes yourself or employ other staff members to teach sessions for you. Classes are taught in community centres and in school halls, with administration fully manageable from home on a schedule that suits you. There are many means of increasing income when running a Light UP Franchise. In addition to our classes we run holiday workshops, drama inset days and parties, all of which offer great earning potential and also help to market your core classes, should you choose to offer these extra opportunities to your local community.
