Drama Kids - Franchise

Teaching children through Drama
A Dramatic business awaits you with Drama Kids International, the USA provider of the world's largest and most popular drama program, ranked the 2nd best Children's Enrichment Franchise in 2011 by Entrepreneur magazine. We are not a theatre business. We are a teaching organization! We utilize a wide range of drama activities to teach children and young adults how to speak up clearly and confidently so they can express themselves and think creatively. Our franchise owners are people who wish to use their child development skills and business acumen to build a dynamic, fun and successful enterprise. Drama experience is not required. In fact, our owners come from a variety of backgrounds, particularly in the business, education and child development fields. Drama Kids International

Where creativity and market demand meet
Most parents intuitively understand the important skills and confidence gained by children who participate in drama related activities. Our current enrollment of over 50,000 children in the USA and internationally proves that. But due to budgetary cutbacks, drama programs in most schools have been eliminated. The need for quality dramatic arts programs for children has never been greater. Join the fabulous, recession-resistant billion dollar children's services market! Discover how Drama Kids can help transition you into a career that offers unlimited possibilities to create a flourishing business and provide meaningful service to your community.

Your Drama Kids business can be run out of a home-managed office, with classes held in schools, community centers and similar locations in your exclusive territory. We also work with organizations such as parks & recreation departments, scouting organizations and health clubs to provide our quality program to their members and to the general public. Drama Kids summer camps are also offered to meet the growing demand for quality summer camps and teen workshops.

The Drama Kids difference!
Our program is a highly unique teaching program that is unlike any other drama program on the market. We use a specialized curriculum combined with customized teaching techniques to ensure that each student – regardless of age, ability or personality - receives quality instruction, fast paced fun and well deserved recognition. The magic of creative dramatic arts participation, combined with our delivery techniques and copyrighted curriculum, results in fantastic results for our students and loyal customers. Many of our students stay with us for several years. Class offerings include pre-school, kinderkids, lower primary, upper primary, teens and adults. You offer programs in age groups you and your teachers feel most comfortable in, and then you can expand into other age groups over time. Drama Kids International

"On a day-to-day basis, one of the great benefits of being a Drama Kids owner is the flexibility which working from home affords – no morning rush hour, casual dress, ability to maintain hobbies and interests, and also be around during the day when family members are ill. My business is an investment that allows me to work in my chosen profession, education, while also building an attractive asset. I am proud of what I have achieved through my own efforts and with the great support given by the Drama Kids staff."Cathy Lipton
"The Curriculum is excellent, varied and stimulating … classes are consistently good fun, with responsive, imaginative, happy and increasingly, confident, expressive students … I feel very happy to be in this business."Marina Giller
"I felt that if I was to go back into the workforce, I needed a job that was meaningful to me and a valuable service to others. I’m now a positive influence to my students and I’m my own boss in my home office. I receive great support from Drama Kids and have met some great Drama Kids owners who are now my friends. Drama Kids has been a good investment for me on so many levels."Tricia Foster
