Course summary

Musical theatre dazzles, delights and inspires us. But it’s not all about singalongs and dancing in the aisles. In some groundbreaking productions, musical theatre has been used to confront social issues using humour, passion and pathos. If you share the same strength of feeling and energy that charges these type of shows and enjoy collaborating creatively with others then our Musical Theatre degree is just the ticket for you. It combines drama, dance, voice and performing arts in a rewarding and vibrant programme that engages with historical and contemporary musical theatre. Our aim is to put you through your paces and encourage you to become a well-rounded and versatile performer. To achieve this we offer a rich learning experience which brings together movement, acting and singing with both theory and practice. Teaching takes place in a unique interdisciplinary environment drawing on the combined strengths of staff from the Drama and Performing Arts departments. Your first year provides a foundation of skills training and understanding of the history and contexts within which musical theatre is made. Year 2 continues to balance discussion of how musical theatre works are put together and how they impact audiences, with opportunities to develop practically through core modules such as The Role of the Actor: Voice, Body, Ethics, and Development of the Voice. In addition, there is a range of choices through which you can begin to personalise your experience and there are opportunities to study abroad in America. Year 3 is your chance to fly. There are more opportunities to specialise and explore ideas alongside preparation for future careers through further skills training, and modules such as Creative Entrepreneurship and Production. External experiences such as internships and collaborations are accompanied by a directed production working with fellow students and an independent supervised project in an area that inspires you. You graduate with practical performance skills, industry knowledge, and an impressive work portfolio under your belt -- basically you are ready to hit the West End, Broadway and beyond with the confidence to pursue your dream job. Musical theatre is a diverse and dynamic industry and this is reflected in the careers open to graduates who go on to find roles as musical theatre professionals creating, performing, researching or writing. Others work for theatrical houses that either receive shows or produce their own, or work with young people in education and community contexts.
