Study type Taught


This postgraduate Musical Theatre Company course combines rigorous conservatoire training with continued, collaborative, student-led development of new work, preparing students not only to gain employment in the musical theatre industry, but as artists creating their own work.

With weekly classes in a range of dance styles, voice, acting, and singing (including audition technique), students will form a company and use these skills to engage in continued and collaborative development of new work (alongside students from the other MAs), guided by leading directors and practitioners working in the industry today.

Working towards public performances at the end of the year, students will leave prepared for auditions, the rehearsal process and the life of a working actor, having developed the knowledge, skills and contacts necessary to succeed in this highly-demanding industry.

Please note this is a postgraduate course. If you wish to apply to our BA (Hons) Musical Theatre you will need to submit an application via UCAS Undergraduate.


You will be assessed at the end of each of three trimesters on Applied Musical Theatre Context, Skills for the Musical Theatre performer and the Performance Project. These practical assessments will focus on putting into practice the skills received during that trimester. This will include dance, singing, acting and audition technique, as well as your collaborative process in the Performance Project. Finally, you will be assessed on your Major Project, which culminates in a production/s in third term. This assessment will cover the Project's inception, development and performance/s, largely based upon a dissertation you will produce.
