Perform on a West End Stage! Taught by West End Stars! See a West End Show!
We run the ultimate theatre summer school for 8 - 21 year olds. West End Stage is a week-long course that runs for 3 weeks in August every year. It takes place at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama; this world renowned theatre school provides top class facilities for our students to learn, rehearse and be creative. The school is based in Barbican, central London.
Throughout the week students will be taught singing, dancing and acting by West End stars, all with professional West End credits! On top of this, students will learn what it is like to be a professional West End performer during our exclusive professional masterclasses. We also take the students to see a midweek matinee of a top West End show. Students will have many opportunities to ask lots of questions and find out more about the industry, receiving expert advice and support from our tutors.
The most exciting day for our students is performance day, when they get to perform on a professional West End Stage! Her Majesty's theatre is a prestigious West End venue, and is the home of The Phantom of the Opera.
For students travelling from outside London, we also provide 7 nights onsite accommodation at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama halls of residence. They will have their own bedroom in a same-sex shared flat with 3/4 other students their own age. All meals are provided, as well as 24/7 care and supervision. The site is extremely secure, with CCTV and security monitoring day and night. It has its own recreational facilities and is gated with key card entry that only our summer school staff have access to. We also have lots of extra fun West End treats and surprises in the evenings throughout the week.
Courses start from 10th August 2020 with non-residential places also available.
