Course summary

About the course

Central's BA (Hons) Acting (Musical Theatre) degree course provides you with the skills to work in classical and contemporary theatre, musicals, feature film, television and radio. Throughout the course, you will explore acting through a range of contemporary approaches to sung and spoken voice, movement and dance.

  • Intensive musical theatre training with the emphasis on acting
  • Extensive engagement with industry professionals
  • External performance opportunities/collaboration with artists, theatre companies and producers
  • 3 years full-time, and students are entitled to full Equity status upon graduation.

As an actor, you will interrogate both musical and non-musical settings ranging from Shakespeare and the modern American realists to Sondheim and the popular musical. As the course progresses you will acquire the necessary skills for the realisation of ‘character’ in both the transformational and heightened theatrical styles of both spoken and sung performance.

The course has outstanding links with the performing arts industry and this is reflected in the wide range and high percentage of graduate employment.

Assessment Tasks

Each unit has assessment tasks, with a ‘magnitude’ (i.e. amount or size of task) which will allow you the opportunity to show that you have achieved the learning outcomes of the degree.
