West London Drama Training

Promote courage, positive self-image and creative imagination

The brainchild of an award-winning producer and casting director Esta Charkham, West London Drama Training (WLDT) brings together a team of energetic and theatre professionals to shape, support and inspire the next generation of young performers. Led by principal, Sam Kermer, the school is now it its 21st year and boasts alumni that have made their way into productions like The Mousetrap, Mamma Mia 2, Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings series and Netflix’s The Crown, and pursued an array of creative roles as producers, directors, singers and sound designers.

WLDT promotes courage, positive self-image and creative imagination through their courses. By working on performing skills with every child, WLDT aims to boost confidence, encourage teamwork, guide and nurture students, and open doors for those with passion and talent through their own agency. WLDT specifically prepares students for casting opportunities that come their way, so students audition their best when the casting directors rock up on a Saturday in search of new talent.

WLDT operates term courses for Lower School (Years 2 to 8) and Upper School (Years 9 to 11+) 10.00 am – 1.00 pm every Saturday during term time.

Lower School classes take place at Hammersmith Academy, 25 Cathnor Rd, Shepherd’s Bush, London W12 9JD.
Upper School classes take place at St Peter’s Primary Hall, 47 St Peter’s Grove, Hammersmith, London W6 9AY

WDLT’s next intake is for their summer term programme, which runs from 23 April to 9 July 2022.
