Course Content

Our Musical Theatre Summer School 2017 combines singing, dance and acting, as well as additional techniques and a visit to a West End Show. Although the programme is rigorous, we're here to be supportive and work with you to nurture your skills and help grow your confidence.

SUMMARY

The course has been created to give participants the experience of full-time, conservatoire musical theatre training, and has been designed to further establish practical skills, as well as a more informed understanding of the expectations of the genre.

Participants can expect classes such as jazz dance, vocal technique, acting through song and audition technique. All of these classes will be used to develop confidence and communication within musical theatre and performance settings, with an emphasis on integration of skills and audition techniques.

Classes are led by members of the Trinity Laban Faculty and established musical directors, choreographers, teachers and performers from the industry. Read more about the tutors.

The course also includes a ticket as part of a group outing to a West End Show. Details will be available in Spring 2017. Tickets cannot be exchanged or transferred.  

Participants

The course is suitable for those with previous experience in at least one of the three musical theatre areas of singing, acting and dance, but we are able to cater for a range of abilities and experiences so if you feel that you are less strong in an area then the course is still for you!

"I loved the variation of the classes - every class gave me a new insight on Musical Theatre" - Musical Theatre Summer School Participant 2015

Timetable

A typical day runs from 09.30-16.30h, with time for breaks and lunch in between. At the end of the course there will be an informal sharing event to give you the opportunity to perform to each other and share some of what you've learnt. Additionally, one mid-week evening will involve a trip to a West End theatre to see a show.
