This is a challenging course designed for the student desiring to follow a career path in Musical Theatre. Emphasis will be given in the first term to preparation for entry to conservatoire/drama schools. Development of triple threat performance skills is the emphasis of the course. Performance opportunities will be made available. The year will culminate with a showcase. Classes will be delivered in all three performance disciplines – Singing, Dancing and Acting – providing the opportunity for students to become ‘triple threat’ performers. Within your musical theatre company you will work within a schedule that emulates that of a professional company taking daily technique classes and working towards performance opportunities. Along with your regular teaching staff you will also participate in workshops from visiting practitioners. At the end of the course students have the opportunity to celebrate their achievement with a full graduation ceremony at Chichester Cathedral.
Progress from this course can lead to Drama School, University or into theatrical professions. Students will perform as part of a real theatre company, develop their portfolio and networking skills to prepare themselves for the "world of work".
