West End in Schools

The pantomime, dance and theatre company with trained actors from London’s West End.

Using our experience as an Olivier Award winning West End production company we bring the best writers, directors and actors working in the industry into productions and workshops for schools just like yours.

Every year we delight thousands of children with a top quality pantomime in their own school hall. This year we are offering our new pantomime Scroogical alongside the ever-popular Aladdin, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Cinderella options.

Hundreds of schools book our pantomimes to run in school hours, many supported by their PTA. And some enterprising PTA's use our pantomimes to boost their fundraising activities. You can read more about that in our blog “Putting the Fun in Fundraising”.

Our team includes performers who have sung in musicals such as Wicked and Matilda; danced in Chicago and Shrek; and acted at the National Theatre, among others. You get brilliant West End performers coming to your school to perform the show of your choice. 

Our shows and workshops are highly creative learning experiences. With top quality talent at the helm the children are transported to magical, musical lands and have lots of fun along the way. Each story and song is written especially for primary school audiences and there are plenty of opportunities for the children to join in.

We also deliver a range of popular dance workshops, musical theatre shows and Shakespeare workshops in primary schools throughout the year.  You can find out more on our website.

Here are some comments from a few of the primary schools we visited last year (there are more on our website):

Testimonials

Early Years Coordinator - St Stephen's CofE Primary School

The actors were fun and energetic, which made the show magical. They both really engaged the audience, especially by allowing the children to participate in the performance. All our families stated from the evaluation we did that they thought the performance was exceptional and would like to have one at least twice a year.

Executive Headteacher - St Mary's Bluecoat CofE Primary School

Having used West End in Schools before I knew that we would have a quality performance. I was not wrong! Today's show was engaging for all of our children and the staff (who were reenergised by the show at what is such a busy time in the primary school calendar). The actors were very professional and friendly. I congratulate the company for offering such a high quality service to schools. Thank you.

Deputy Headteacher - Combs Ford Primary School

 The actors were well prepared and punctual. The children loved the pantomime, which was perfectly pitched for their age range. We all had a very enjoyable afternoon - thank you!

Chair of the PTA and Parent Governor - Walberton and Binsted Cof E Primary School

Cinderella came to our school yesterday and we all thought it was wonderful. The actors were brilliant and it was at just the right tone for the children. There was interaction, lots of booing and 'look behind you'...everything that a good panto should have. We loved it.
