Our Musical Theatre course is designed for those passionate about performing in a professional, fun, friendly and supportive class atmosphere. Working alongside industry professionals, you will learn medleys from the most memorable musicals such as Les Miserable, Jersey Boys, Chicago, Mamma Mia & Wicked to name but a few. You will have the chance to audition for solo parts, learn dance and movement to your vocals and create amazing story telling performances which will then give you the option to perform in one of our many up and coming showcases.
You don’t have to be the best singer, dancer or actor, but if you have charisma, a love for musical theatre and of course a love of performing, then this is the class for you. The Musical Theatre class is designed for all levels of performers from the total novice to the budding professional at heart.
