Course summary

Be a part of the greatest show and combine dancing, singing and acting in this highly practical Musical Theatre degree. Train to be a ‘triple threat’ and develop your talents and practical skills in line with West End productions. Alongside theory and academic studies of the musical theatre industry, you will take part in intensive, performance-based classes, developing skills for the stage, working on choreography, scripts and lyrics. Learning from highly experienced and well-connected tutors, you will also learn a range of audition techniques, work on your solo repertoire and be given the opportunity to audition in-house for a number of London based theatre schools. As well as gaining performance experience, you will work alongside the London School of Musical Theatre and under course adviser Lee Proud, current choreographer on The Producers UK tour. Our patron Mark Stuart Hedges, currently resident on the Mary Poppins UK tour, will be a guest tutor and you will have the chance to audition for London School of Musical Theatre, CPA and Mountview Academy. On successful completion of this degree, you can progress on to the BA (Hons) Musical Theatre degree at Newcastle College University Centre. Alternatively, you could apply to a specialist drama school or seek employment in a theatre. Students from the foundation programme have gained places at Arts Educational, LSMT, Mountview, Urdang, Bird College, Performers, Italia Conti, Central and GSA.
