West End Stage gives you the chance to be seen by casting directors and industry agents!
Every year I come to West End Stage I am constantly amazed at the dedication, passion and energy of its teachers and students alike. To see young people with smiles on their faces, looking eager to learn and working together towards a common goal is a real pleasure. Each student is given an excellent grounding in what is required to succeed in the business, while being supported and encouraged by West End professionals. It is for these reasons that I am always delighted to return year on year to see what WES are up to and what new talent has joined them for the summer. I am already looking forward to seeing what they will come up withJo Hawes, Casting Director
