The Shaftesbury was the last theatre to be built on Shaftesbury Avenue and was originally named The Princes Theatre. Opening in 1911, it has seen many notable productions and famous faces over the last century and it’s now the largest independent theatre in the West End.

Lots of amazing shows have been staged here such as Hairspray, Memphis the Musical, Rock of Ages….

Class Talent only stage one show on the Sunday with a full technical and dress rehearsal for your students plus a warm-up workout with a West end star (This is offered at all our theatres)

A brilliant marketing tool for any dance and theatre school is to advertise performances in the West End.

You are only required to be in London for the day of the show, before the exciting day arrives, you choreograph/organise your own showcase. You use your own choice of costumes, and music.

(Please note that due to the size of the dressing rooms, we are required to put a couple of schools into Business conference rooms in the travel lodge next door to the theatre to change – this does not affect any of the days events for these schools)

We offer any amount of performers from your school to take part in one of our shows at The Shaftesbury Theatre from  5 years old. We have NO upper age limit.

We can only have a limited amount of performers in the theatre, so if you would like to join us we would love you to contact us ASAP.
