about Earthbeat Earthbeat shows Earthbeat dance and drama Earthbeat gallery



Earthbeat are delighted to announce that we have been successful in our bid to acquire the old Saltburn School. At last, we will have ‘a home of our own’ and all of our performers will enjoy using the building, which will be designed to suit their needs.

 As you know, we have had a long drawn out struggle to find a new base but our efforts have finally paid off and the council have granted us a 50-year lease. For those who don’t know, the basic idea is that, primarily, the school will provide a home for the Earthbeat theatre Company. It will also provide a resource for the community. Many of the classrooms will be available to rent out to social enterprises, individuals and small businesses. Other rooms, such as the dance studio, meeting room and auditorium, will be available to hire for weekend and evening classes.

 Work will now begin to renovate the old building, which has fallen into disrepair and is in desperate need of a complete makeover. We are asking for help from anyone who feels they could spare a few hours to paint walls and windows, varnish floors etc Please contact us by email at or call us on 07969 623118 if you’d like to be a part of this amazing project.



We plan to hold a public meeting, in the school, on the 8th October from 7pm to set out our vision. So, if you’re interested in renting one of the classrooms, hiring a room for a class or just interested in what’s going on, feel free to pop along.

 We’d also like to express our gratitude to all those people who have supported us to reach this point. Without your fantastic support we might never have realised our dream. Thank you!


Robin Hood - The Musical
September 2014 – Saltburn Community Theatre

In typical Earthbeat fashion we've taken a well-loved story and given it an Earthbeat makeover. All the characters from the folk tale will be present - Robin Hood, Maid Marion, the Sheriff of Nottingham etc but they'll be joined by an amazing and surprising soundtrack. This will be a lot of fun.

Tickets will be on sale in August



The Wizard of Oz

December 2014 - Saltburn Community Theatre

This years Christmas show will take the form of The Wizard of Oz. We've been wanting to do this show for years and it promises to be quite spectacular.

Tickets will go on sale in November




May 2015 - The Earthbeat School of Performing Arts

Forget everything you know about classical music and join us as we turn the world of Mozart and Beethoven on it's head. This show is elegant, clever and, in places, just plain daft!

Tickets will go on sale in April




PERFORMER PROFILE          Angela Mollen


Angela is a relative newcomer to Earthbeat having been with us for only two years. She is a quiet, thoughtful person but is a bit of a worrier. She’s also very kind and affectionate and really enjoys her time on the stage. Angela is a lovely singer and she’ll be singing several songs in our forthcoming production of Scrooge, in which she plays the devil (don’t ask – just go with it). 

This is only her second show, having made her debut in last years ‘Bun fight at the OK Corral’. Angela lives in Loftus where she shares a house with a number of other people.
