Join peers your own age for musical theatre training in some of the West End’s most famous studios…the same studios where they rehearse the West End shows, all while living on the 150-acre grounds of a Harry Potter-style boarding school founded in 1553, the Tonbridge School in Kent.
You will take classes in acting, singing, dance, audition techniques, and stage combat, and participate in workshops of West End shows led by current West End cast members. You will see at least one show per week as a group, giving you the unique opportunity to see your instructors on stage performing the exact choreography and scenes you have been working on in the studio!
Each week features a full-day excursion, including a visit to the home of the British Royal Family at their residence in Windsor Castle, a trip to Cambridge including a stop at the renowned university at the heart of the charming city, and two trips to famous London landmarks and sites such as Trafalgar Square, Downing Street, Horse Guards Parade, Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Abbey.

As participants for this program are under 18, safety through support and supervision is our number one concern. Our London partners, Bucksmore Education at the Tonbridge School in Kent, have decades of experience supporting teens on programming specifically designed for their age group. We will also be providing a Performing Arts Abroad Group Leader who will greet you at the airport upon arrival, accompany the group on all activities, and will be available 24 hours for support.
“My time in London was absolutely incredible. I learned so much that I wouldn’t have been able to learn back home or anywhere else. Besides doing what I love and working with professionals I also got to share my passion with the wonderful people I met through the program. Not only from the U.S, but Germany, Italy, Canada, Switzerland, Finland, Australia, and Hong Kong. Being able to have experienced so much in three short weeks was amazing and I encourage anyone interested to do it.”
