musicals in schools

Applications for Eastside’s Disney Musicals in Schools Programme starting in September 2019 are now open for Primary Schools across London. 


Eastside’s Disney Musicals in Schools is a free programme delivered by musical theatre professionals in up to 5 London Primary schools each year. We guide school teachers through a programme of support, tools and resources to put on their very own musical theatre show and lasting guidance to help embed performing arts within the school for years to come.


As well as strengthening their skills in acting, singing, dancing and working backstage, students will develop confidence, enhance speaking & listening and will learn how to collaborate with their peers. The 17-week programme in each school culminates in a Disney KIDS production within your school community, and each cast of young performers will also have the unique opportunity to showcase their work at a special performance on a West End stage.


Disney Musicals in Schools presents primary schools with a unique opportunity to introduce the collaborative art of musical theatre to your school, strengthen your arts offer, and develop collaboration amongst students, teachers, parents and governors.


Interested in Applying?

The programme is completely free of charge, but Eastside expects schools to commit to dedicating resources and staff time to ensure the project is a success.


We particularly encourage schools that have a high proportion of EAL and Pupil Premium students to apply, as well as those who are keen to develop and embed a sustainable performing arts offer at the school.
