Welcome to West End In Schools - we are thrilled we’ve been recommended to you! We’d love to visit you with a pantomime this year, and as a thank you for helping us spread a bit of extra Christmas cheer we will bring a luxury gift for your staff room as well.
Our pantomimes use specially written scripts and songs and focus on storytelling with charm - and lots of joining in!
Dick Whittington and his Cat
When the Bells of London tell Dick Whittington he’ll be Mayor of the whole city, he and his brave sidekick Tommy the Cat leap into the biggest adventure of their lives. But they need the children's help to outsmart their enemy Queen Rat and her army of ratty minions.
Join us on a journey that crosses oceans, jam-packed with songs, games and dance moves. As Tommy discovers the magical secret of his all-powerful Kapow Meeyow, Dick discovers the true meaning of teamwork.
Beauty and the Beast
Join Beauty on her brave journey to a mysterious castle, hidden deep in an enchanted forest. As the audience share enchanted castle life with Beauty and the Beast, we help them learn the true meaning of friendship and fun in this re-imagined tale where both Beauty and the Beast are trapped in his castle.
Beauty’s magical adventure, with her new friend the Beast, shows us all that kindness and beauty are much more than skin deep…
Jack and the Beanstalk
The fairytale kingdom of Littletania is in trouble – BIG trouble! The greedy Giant Blunderbore rules the land, and our hero Jack is determined to defeat this gigantic meanie.
Share the adventure as a magical beanstalk grows right in front of your eyes. Jack needs your help, to find the courage to climb the beanstalk and rescue Muriel the Dancing Cow from the nasty Giant's castle in the clouds.
The magical, mystical world of Old Peking comes to your school this Christmas, brought to life by our West End actors.
Reckless ragamuffin Aladdin has an adventurous streak which keeps getting him into trouble. He defies the law and looks upon the face of Princess Jasmine – and all at once he's wanted by the police and head-over-heels in love.
Scroogical! A Children's Christmas Carol
There's BIG trouble in ChristmasHQ. Chrissie the trainee Christmas Spirit has got to persuade the meanest meanie of them all, Ebenezer Scrooge, to believe in the magic and wonder of Christmas, or she'll never pass her Festive Test.
If she fails, and if Scrooge's “Bah Humbug!” loathing of all things Christmassy spreads, then Christmas could get cancelled – forever!
Chrissie's going to need the help of every child in your school as she goes on a magical adventure to try to change Scrooge's mean and miserly ways, and save Christmas!
