About the course

This MA Musical Theatre* course is designed to deliver world class actor training for those committed to a professional career in Musical Theatre performance.

Over the 12 month course applicants will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of new and existing Musical Theatre writing, historical and political contexts of the genre at the time of writing, work with a wide range of musical theatre practitioners and choreographers and discover a range of approaches to the genre.

Students training on this course will benefit from the opportunity to explore a variety of musicals and the effective communication of song, choreography and text, and the thoughtful interpretation of lyric and music. The course will culminate in a public-facing musical production, the chance to develop a showreel, and a UK industry facing showcase.

Graduates will emerge industry ready 'triple threat' performers with a showreel and repertoire of solo songs for future auditions. The course aims to provide a route into professional performance work as an actor in Musical Theatre.
