Our vibrant Musical Theatre Department has an outstanding reputation for its rigorous and dynamic performance training.
Situated in 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.
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
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.find out more
