Our vibrant Musical Theatre Department has an unparalleled reputation for its rigorous and dynamic performance training.
Situated in the heart of the UK’s musical theatre capital, with excellent links to the West End and beyond, we will equip you with all the skills you need to become a creative, empowered performer for the 21st century.
Performance lies at the heart of Musical Theatre. You will have many opportunities to take part in projects of all shapes and sizes, modelled on real-life performance contexts. These will give you the chance to apply and adapt your developing skills to a diverse range of repertoire and performance settings.
Musical Theatre is itself the fusion of different art forms. At Trinity Laban you will work collaboratively not just within the department, but with students and staff from across the Conservatoire. You will work closely with musicians from the Faculty of Music, with pit bands for our end of year productions being recruited from the ranks of our music students. You will also take part in CoLab, our unique two-week collaborative learning experience across the institution, where you will be encouraged to take creative risks, try out new artistic ventures and push the boundaries of your art forms
Engaging with the Profession
During your time with us we prepare you to enter the profession confidently.
The diverse curriculum covers artistic leadership and business skills, as well as skills in public performance and audience engagement, preparing your CV, audition techniques, guidance on self-employment and tax, personal development, and accessing arts funding. Masterclasses, seminars, and visiting artists will provide you with the chance to work with and observe world-class professional performers.
You will also have the opportunity to perform in well-established London venues, working with key industry figures in professional contexts. Industry-led projects, workshops and an agent showcase, will provide you with a strong foundation for your future career.
