Welcome to SOTA! - Founded in 2005 andindependently owned by former West End performer and screen actress Juliette Caton, SOTA is Berkshire's leading performing arts academy and theatre school, providing a professional, vibrant and fun environment for young people of all ages to enjoy dance, singing and drama classes in Reading, Bracknell, Windsor, Caversham & Cookham. With SOTA's first class reputation, pupils are drawn from the surrounding areas of Wokingham, Winnersh, Earley, Basingstoke, Goring, Henley, & Datchet and pupils have been known to travel from as far as Southampton and Bournemouth to receive our training.
We are thrilled to announce that SOTA pupil Hayley Canham (9 years old) has won the part of Matilda in Matilda the Musical.
Hayley will start playing the role in August 2012 and this will mark her West End debut.
We are incredibly proud of Hayley's achievement, the show is incredible and the role of Matilda is an enormous Olivier Award winning challenge that Hayley is very much enjoying rehearsing for.
