The wealth of performance opportunities are an important aspect of each performer's training and our sheer passion for Musical Theatre is evident in the daily life of the school.
From the classroom to the studio to the presentation to the performance, to the profession. Our aims are your aims and we aim to provide the stepping stones towards your greatest ambitions as a performer.
The school boasts its own two contrasting theatres – The Novello Theatre at Sunninghill, a fully equipped proscenium arched 160 seater venue, open to the public and providing an outstanding work experience for students; and our 42 seater intimate venue where we stage smaller scale productions. Both provide their own characterful settings and are an invaluable asset.
We perform at major venues including the very beautiful Windsor Theatre Royal, the 1000 seater Wycombe Swan and together with celebrities we have worked to raise money for very special charities.
Our Performing Arts Sixth Form brings ongoing and wide ranging sixth form theatre into the School and may include small scale touring, classical performance in the theatre or perhaps "in the round", ongoing rehearsal and performance whether as part of the Theatre Studies syllabus or the Performing Arts BTEC. The opportunities here, both on school grounds and beyond, are infinite. Of course as a community of young performers the creative work outside the classroom is unlimited and we love to see new Writers and Directors emerging through their own endeavours and will of course support them by providing them with both advice where requested, and an audience!
It doesn’t stop here…many of our pupils audition for and are regularly part of West End productions. The last years have seen agency successes including Sound of MusiC (Regents Park) and for separate managements in Doha and on UK tour; Matilda, Billy Elliot, Oliver, Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins and straight West End Plays. Our TV/film successes are equally evident and many of our pupils may seem familiar to you already.
