West End in Schools. The pantomime, dance and theatre company with trained actors from London’s West End.
Every child’s imagination should be inspired by the arts. Our mission is to use the skills of professional theatre to provide highly creative cultural experiences which children will remember for ever.
West End in Schools offers pantomimes, dance and drama workshops, musical theatre shows, and Shakespeare workshops to primary schools all over the UK.
Our pantomimes are performed by professional actors and created by writers, directors and designers who we commission from within the professional theatre and children’s television industries.
For our 2019 panto season we’re offering schools a choice of five fantastic titles: Aladdin, Cinderella, Dick Whittington, Scroogical and Beauty and the Beast.
Our pantomimes are written especially for primary school audiences and there are plenty of opportunities for the children to join in – all in the comfort of your school hall.
Some enterprising PTA's use our pantomimes to boost their festive fundraising activities.
Our range of topic-based dance and drama workshops are available to primary schools throughout the year including on World Book Day. Topics range from literacy to Shakespeare, Diwali and anti-bullying. You can find out more on our website, and please do get in touch – we’d love to hear from you!

Thank you for visiting us. The children had lots of fun and loved that they were able to participate. The actors were very talented and engaging. We had a great time!
- Ongar Primary School
The pantomime that the children watched was brilliant; it was full of fun, laughter and offered plenty of opportunities for the children to join in. The songs were very child friendly even though we had not learnt them prior to your visit and they sang along with the words after the first couple of choruses. Your staff were professional, friendly and very polite which made it a pleasure having your company in our school.
- Kingsmoor Lower School
Great performance of Aladdin. The actors held the children's attention throughout. The children loved every minute, lots of singing, interaction and smiles and laughter. The perfect Christmas treat!
