Trinity Laban has developed an outstanding reputation for its Musical Theatre performance training.
We distinguish ourselves by equipping you with the creative and technical skills required to work in a diverse range of musical theatre contexts. Our highly employable graduates are thoroughly prepared for this competitive and increasingly popular branch of the arts industry.
Types of Performance opportunities:
- small and medium-scale showings of work
- classic and contemporary musical theatre repertoire
- theatre in education in local schools
- a West End agent showcase
- a devised musical
Musical Theatre performance work is supported by musicians from across the Faculty of Music, with pit bands for our end of year productions taken from our current music students.
You will also take part in CoLab, our unique two-week collaborative project involving students and staff from across the institution. During the project you will be encouraged to take
creative risks and explore the boundaries
of your art forms.
As an undergraduate student, you will have the chance to perform in prestigious professional venues, including our own Blackheath Halls and Laban Theatre, Leicester Square Theatre in London’s West End, and Stratford Circus.
Recent performances include Cabaret, Legally Blonde, Lucky Stiff, Made in Dagenham, Betty Blue Eyes and Crazy For You.
“Trinity Laban allows you to build skills in a safe, supportive environment which is ideal for becoming a unique individual performer. I feel I have developed both personally and as a performer!”
