MA Music Theatre is a unique course combining conservatoire-style training and critical reflection. It is specifically designed for performers who wish to further enhance their performance and creative skills and deepen their knowledge within the many forms and expressions of music theatre, including musicals, opera, actor-musicianship, operetta, melodrama, film and video, public performance, and interdisciplinary performance.
It is predominantly an intensive practical course that integrates acting, singing, movement and voice with a view to enabling students to enter the industry. Within the structure of performance training there may be opportunities to create original work and to pursue related activities such as composing, writing, choreography and acting with instruments. MA research activities are designed to facilitate and reinforce a deeper reflection of individual processes, creative activities and personal skills development in a dynamic postgraduate culture of theatre practice.
Specialist lecturers and artists are invited to deliver classes and workshops that complement a teaching staff with proven and long-term experience in the profession. Emphasis is placed on acquiring and practising skills through creativity and performance within all aspects of music theatre, from conventional Broadway and West End repertoire to new writing and that which involves new media and alternative theatre practices. Collaboration and teamwork, imagination and creativity are valued aspects of all activities and are explored from many different perspectives.
This is by public performances, professional assessment in class work, research presentations and written submissions.
