West End Calling was set up in 2016 is an exciting competition for young musical theatre performers in the UK, giving contestants under the age of 21 the chance to compete for the ‘West End Calling’ crown and perform at our grand final in London’s West End!


West End stars from shows such as Wicked, The Book of Mormon, Les Miserables, Mamma Mia and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (to name but a few) judge each round of the competition and give their expert opinions and advice.

Such a brilliant and inexpensive way to prepare for auditions due to the incredibly useful professional feedback given at every stage. I felt myself improving as the competition progressed!
