Currently in its firth year, the one-year full time MA Musical Theatre programme has quickly become one of the College's flagship courses, attracting attention and support from some of the biggest names in the industry.
Building on the success of the College's well established acting and vocal programmes, the course also benefits from close collaborations with the music, production and design departments, placing it at the very centre of the College's creatively diverse community.
The emphasis is on building links within the musical theatre profession world and preparing students to be work-ready by the time they graduate. Throughout the course, students have opportunities to meet and work closely with professional directors, musical directors and choreographers as well as visiting artists and other key figures from within the industry.
Annual Showcase performances take place in Cardiff and at London giving students the opportunity to perform in front of a specially invited audience of agents, casting directors and other potential employers. There are further opportunities for public performance in a fully staged end-of-year production and a mid-year cabaret.
Students are immersed in an intensive schedule throughout the year including one-to-one singing lessons and repertoire coaching, acting, dance and vocal skills classes, workshops and rehearsals.
