Program overview

Throughout the course, students can immerse themselves in the theatre process by auditioning, rehearsing, and staging a musical in an intensive manner that mirrors the practice of industry professionals. They are able to hone their skills during performances of well-known hit shows alongside lesser-known productions, while reflecting on the actual productions to gain a rounded contextual understanding of musical theatre. As the course progresses, students can learn about the history of musicals and their significance in contemporary society, while undertaking more independent, industry-focused tasks, emphasising employability and preparing them to enter into a variety of associated careers. One-to-one singing lessons are available at no extra cost, and students can participate in regular dance sessions, learn audition skills, and develop the techniques of ‘acting a song’. Guidance on how to form a musical theatre company, devise a show, and tour the production around the country is also available.
