Spotlights West Wickhams 10 year anniversary performance of Bugsy Malone was fabulous. We loved the costumes, especially the little ones in their suits. They looked adorable and managed some great American accents! The last dance to the Will.I.Am song was a really clever addition

I just wanted to say congratulations to both of you, and all the staff of Spotlights, for putting on such a great show. It was clear how much work had gone into it and the kids did you proud. You deserve a lot of credit for producing the show and nurturing the talent. I was incredibly proud of Matilda. I was blown away by her commitment and how she stayed in character and gave it her all. She loved it and from feeling worried and self-conscious about it now can't wait for the next show.

Love, love ,loved the show - everyone performed to such a high standard. They should all be so proud of themselves.

What a fantastic show on Sunday, Great Grandma thought it was wonderful, and our 2 little ones were completely in awe of their big Brother.

Mahruse Hassan


This was a fabulous show and the children were amazing. The choreography, music and singing were great and having seen Bugsy Malone at the Lyric, I can honestly say that I had as much fun watching the Spotlights version. This was my son’s first role and he absolutely loved it, I hope it will be the first of many to come. Well done to all the Spotlights Theatre Staff and students!

Sameena Khan


We really loved the show it was very professional and could have graced any theatre. I was really proud to bring other family members to watch such a wonderful show.

Gill Mead


Just wanted to say a massive well done to all the children and teachers. The show was amazing, one of the biggest surprise was that the children were speaking in an American accent, and kept it through the whole play. The singing among the children was excellent and there was some incredible singers. The performance was gripping even my 2.5 year old sat through it quietly and did not fidget! Well done to all the performers and the teachers, you were all fantastic and I can't wait to see the next production.

Urvina Johannes


Thanks for putting together another highly professional production of Bugsy Malone; this was the best yet! The children really excelled in their performances and the quality of the singing was amazing. In many cases you wouldn’t see anything better in the West End! Congratulations to all involved.

All of our family thoroughly enjoyed Bugsy Malone. It is fantastic to see how much the children all enjoy their roles and how confident they are preforming in front of an audience. Thank you all so much for all your hard work.

We thoroughly enjoyed watching Emma in 'Bugsy Malone'. Grandma has told everyone," My granddaughter danced, sang and acted her heart out!" Thanks for giving her this superb opportunity to perform. She loves it, and we love seeing her enthusiasm! She's very proud of her Spotlights certificate and bronze medal and has confidently shared how she gained these, in 'Show and Tell' in her class at school. Thank you for all your hard work and congratulations on Spotlight's 10th anniversary.

Julie Clayton


Firstly well done to all for working so hard with the kids and getting them ready for such a wonderful show! What was really pleasing to see was all the kids working with enjoyment, clear for all watching to see. The costumes/music/performance were brilliant and we all came away feeling very proud of the kids and grateful to the staff.

Dan and Sarah Davey


The show was wonderful and a credit to the Spotlights' team effort. Abi is slowly coming down of the high she's been on since Sunday and is missing Blousey big time!

Gaynor Assock


This show one of the best that Chloe has been in. I think the whole atmosphere in the performance hall at the boys school, made it feel and sound like a proper performance.. It was fab.

Claire Wiseman

My daughter has been attending Spotlights for the past few years and absolutely loves it. She has enjoyed making new friends and the teachers are lovely. She joined for the drama but has found a singing voice she never knew she had and is loving the dancing.


Bromley Parent

This is the 6th year our daughter has been going to Spotlights and she has genuinely loved every minute! She started in little stars where, with Monnie's nurturing and expertise, her confidence grew! The termly productions were amazing, and every child got a chance to shine on the stage!

I can't speak highly enough of the teaching team. Their Matilda production was simply amazing! Yet again every child was given an opportunity to shine! The show was extremely professional, and the kids’ faces said it all. They all loved it!
