West End performers train StageScreen students during lockdown

The show must go on – and it does at StageScreen. For instance, we’ve been able to bring in West End performers to teach our students in Zoom workshops during lockdown.

Our classes moved online when the national lockdown began in March. Our students have continued to work hard and, just as importantly, support each other.

Having fun and forging friendships in a safe, caring environment is just as important to us as the training we provide in musical theatre, acting and film work.

Helped by our patron, theatre director Tom O’Brien, we have held a series of Zoom workshops with professional performers from West End shows. You can watch a video below showing the highlights of some of these events and a look forward to our next production – the online children’s musical The Show Must Go Online, which is coming up in September.

Finally, our grateful thanks go to Chris Tendai (Hamilton); Luke Bayer (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie); Tom O’Brien (West End director and StageScreen patron); Christina Modestou (Six and StageScreen MTS patron); Danny Mahoney (screen acting – Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Florence Foster Jenkins) and Barnaby Thompson (The Lion King)
