Put your career centre stage and advance your professional skills in acting, singing and dancing with this practical Musical Theatre degree. You will become a member of ‘The Company’ in which you will perform, as well as lead a non-acting role, offering you hands-on experience and insight into every area of theatre. Build on your existing audition techniques and solo repertoire, learning from expert teachers to help you in your future career. Whether you wish to become a performer or a teacher, you will also build on your knowledge of the industry to develop your own area of study and practice. As a member of ‘The Company’, you will not only be a performer, but have an off-stage role too, to gain hands-on experience of what it takes to work in any field of musical theatre. You may lead rehearsals, coach and support skills development, work alongside technical support or contribute to the creativity of a production. You will also undertake a work placement to develop your skills. On completion of this degree, you could choose to progress to a Masters or other postgraduate qualification such as a PGCE. Alternatively, you may apply for a specialist drama school, or audition for roles in theatre productions. Recent alumni have gained places at London based drama schools such as Arts Educational, LSMT, Mountview, Urdang, Bird College, Performers, Italia Conti, Central and GSA.
