Course Description

Our MA is aimed at students with a previous degree (in any subject) and some experience in musical performance. There are only 32 places available each year and students receive over 36 hours’ contact teaching time each week in classes of 16 or fewer.

The MA develops technical skills through practical classes, workshops and performances and is split equally between the three essential musical theatre skills: singing, dancing and acting. You will receive one-to-one singing classes each week.

Over the first two terms you will take skills classes. These are complemented by performance projects including contemporary and classic book musicals.

In the final term, you’ll present a fully-staged public production and professional showcase attended by agents, casting directors and other prominent industry professionals. American students have the option of a showcase in New York (flights and accommodation costs apply).

Across the year you will prepare for your MA on a performance-related subject of their choice through lectures and tutorials. This is presented as a creative project, backed up with a written project map.
