Lauren Varnham Performing Arts

Learn to Shine


Lauren Varnham Performing Arts opened in January 2015. 


This School has been an idea of Lauren's for some time and initally she thought it would be something she did when her professional career was over but she thought why do it when she is no longer in the industry, when she can do it alongside her career and be the most current Performing Arts School in the area.


We have classes for children from 2 years of age through to 18 years old. Whether you are looking for an extra fun hobby or an opportunity to become a professional performer we have the right classes and team to teach you.


Our Principal Lauren Varnham is an established West End performer having starred in numerous musicals and played leading roles in 5 star shows such as The Pajama Game and We Will Rock You as well as High School Musical, Hairspray and Carousel.


Lauren has recently finished the critically acclaimed 5 Star show Gypsy at the Chichester Festival Theatre where she appeared along side Imelda Staunton; Kevin Whately; Lara Pulver and her former pupil Georgia Pemberton. The show transfers to the Savoy Theatre in the West End in March 2015 (The Telegraph - Gypsy, Chichester Festival Theatre, review: 'highly recommended').


Lauren knows all too well about what it takes to become a professional performer. She wants to pass on what she has learnt throughout her years of training and working in London’s West End to young aspiring performers.


Lauren’s talented team are ALL current performers. We have hand picked the very best all-rounders who we feel will teach our students all aspects of performing to an exceptional standard.


Our resident teachers will also be supported by guest teachers who will be stars of the West End. They will hold a variety of workshops including Wicked, Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by actual cast members.
