Red carpet treatment for Razzamataz students

Premier LondonA Wimbledon based theatre school has been selected to help promote a new film and work alongside 20th Century Fox.

Razzamataz Theatre Schools were approached to celebrate the launch of the hit movie The Kid Who Would Be King starring Sir Patrick Stewart.

The partnership included a hugely successful official social media campaign as well as a schedule of interactive activities at every single Razzamataz school across the country.

Red carpetThe icing on the cake was being invited to the gala premier screening in Leicester Square, dressed in costumes from the film. Students who attend Razzamataz Wimbledon welcomed VIP’s and entertained the celebrities on the red carpet.

“This was an amazing experience for everyone involved and the students had the time of their lives,” says Sophie Atkins, Principal of Razzamataz Wimbledon.


“The children got to meet so many actors and celebrity guests and all the film and events staff commented on how professional and polite they all were.”

The Kid who would be KingThe event started with photo opportunities with the students dressed in the film’s costumes.

Some of the students then lined the entrance to the red carpet to greet the celebrity guests with the ushers while others were involved in every official paparazzi photo with each of the actors.


All the students were then invited into the main screen room with the guests to watch the film, which started with the director Joe Cornish on stage thanking the Razzamataz students.

“These sorts of experiences really make an impression on our young students and gives them a unique insight into the professional world. Of course, it is great fun for them too and for those that are interested in a career in the performing arts, it opens their eyes as to what can be achieved.”

Some of the famous faces that the Razzamataz students met included Sir Patrick Stewart, Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Simon Pegg and David Baddiel.

Wimbledon StudentsElsewhere in the UK, Razzamataz Sutton Coldfield, Razzamataz Paisley, Razzamataz Glasgow North and Razzamataz Dumfries were invited to attend two VIP regional screenings along with Q&A sessions with director Joe Cornish.
