Full Time Professional Musical Theatre
The full-time Professional Musical Theatre Course is intended for students who have left Secondary School and wish to train professionally in preparation for entry to the industry.
The Full-Time course is a 3 year professional training and aims to provide students with the breadth of vocational skills necessary for entry into the profession as a skilled performer. All students receive a comprehensive training featuring Ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, body conditioning, acting, ensemble voice, solo voice, performance class, physical theatre, music theory, sight singing and musical theatre repertoire studies. Students also receive a weekly private singing lesson- focusing on technique and repertoire development.
In addition to the weekly timetable, students receive frequent Master classes by visiting professionals and guest tutors from the industry and crucially, in the 3rd year of the course, students present a Showcase to an invited audience of casting directors and agents in a leading West End London Theatre.
Students are continually assessed within their classes; however formal assessments are also set by the various departments at points throughout the year and receive a tutorial each term where they will have the opportunity to discuss progress with staff.
Students must gain satisfactory results in all assessed areas in order to proceed to the next stage of the Course. Please note that students who do not maintain required attendance, time and commitment levels may have their place terminated irrespective of assessment results.
