musical theatre magic for schools

The Disney Musicals in Schools programme is delivered by our musical theatre professionals to give London primary school teachers the support and development necessary to produce their own musical theatre productions and embed a theatre arts programme that will continue for years to come.

Verse vs Verse is a reading and writing project for 500 children in primary schools in North and West London. Partipating children broaden their reading by exploring a range of books to inspire and develop their writing. They also use drama and performance to bring poetry to life.
