Course Content

The Musical Theatre course is a highly practical course, providing students with the necessary skills and opportunities they need to develop into a ‘triple threat’ performer. We have excellent purpose built facilities, including a mirrored and sprung floor studio and a fully functional black box theatre. Our teachers are specialists and trained to coach singing, dancing and acting skills to a high level.

The course consists of a combination of rehearsals, performances, reports and presentations, allowing the Musical Theatre performer to be fully understood. Key Musical Theatre practitioners will be explored and a range of repertoire learnt. This leads onto the devising of a Musical Theatre piece in the second year where all of these skills can be put into practise.
