Course summary

Why choose this course

As a musical theatre performer, you must be passionate, creative, and be able to form a deep connection with your story, character and audience.

Guildford School of Acting (GSA) is one of the UK’s leading accredited drama schools, providing dedicated conservatoire training within a purpose-built environment.

Successful entry on to GSA’s MA Musical Theatre means you will be part of a carefully selected and committed ensemble of performers-in-training, equipped with the self-discipline and motivation to master new skills and refine existing capabilities. Building on our international reputation in musical theatre, this course will enhance your skills with opportunities to launch your career.

What you will study

This intensive course is specifically designed to equip participants in the ‘triple-threat’ musical theatre disciplines of acting, singing and dancing.

On this course we place a very strong emphasis on the practical acquisition of technical skills (taught within technical skills classes) together with a dedicated focus on professional development. We provide you with opportunities to combine these skills into musical theatre rehearsal projects and public performances.

In addition, you will attend seminars in contextual and theoretical studies, alongside masterclasses led by industry professionals in audition technique and repertoire.

The skills you learn will be integrated through project work which includes: studies of classic legit and contemporary musical theatre texts, a public production led by a production team of theatre professionals, a presentation of your work to a panel of industry professionals, and an industry showcase.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University.

GSA offers careers advice throughout your study course. We host an Industry Showcase as mentioned above, and fully GSA supports students with their first steps into the profession.
