Pullman Hotel London St Pancras
The Urdang Academy has an exciting partnership with Pullman Hotel London St Pancras – the ‘Shaw Theatre’. This collaboration provides students with the opportunity to act, sing and dance on the same West End stage that has graced the presence of stars such as Dame Judi Dench, Dame Flora Robson, Patricia Routledge and Michael Williams!
This partnership has also established the Pullman Scholarship, providing sponsorship to a student who demonstrates exemplary potential, with preference given to a student living in the London Borough of Camden.
We were so impressed with the talent produced by the Urdang Academy that we took great pleasure in establishing the scholarship. We also wanted to work together in order to enhance the experience that the students have by providing a real-life professional venue for the students to practice and perform in.
– Theatre Manager, Trish Washer
