Course summary

From London’s West End to more experimental Fringe performances, musical theatre spans the arts, inspiring and entertaining audiences around the world. Lincoln’s BA (Hons) Musical Theatre enables students to reflect critically on performance practices, while developing core practical production skills. Students can learn from expert staff who are practitioners and scholars trained in music, theatre, and dance. Workshops and masterclasses are delivered by visiting tutors and professionals, offering further opportunities to learn about the practical elements of musical theatre.


This module explores the landscape of musical theatre in non-English speaking countries, beyond Broadway and the West End. Although it is these production centres that are most familiar, there is a remarkable amount of activity taking place around the world. In this module, students can discover what musical theatre is like from the Philippines to Mexico, and from Israel to Japan.

Assessment method

The programme has been developed to assess students in a variety of ways, designed to preparing them with the skills needed to enter into the industry. Assessment methods may include: practical assessments in performance; annotated performances; individual and group presentations; critical performance reviews; personal reflection tasks; personal development plans; project proposals; project treatments; cv preparation; placement/teaching assessment; and portfolios. As the course progresses, student assessment will focus on independent, industry-focused tasks, which emphasise employability. Feedback will be both formative (through ongoing feedback during class/rehearsal sessions) and summative (through written feedback following specific assessment points).
