What to Expect

The course has been created to give participants the experience of full-time, conservatoire musical theatre training and 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 the integration of these skills.

I met amazing new friends which made the classes even more enjoyable because I was having fun with new people I wouldn’t have met anywhere else.

Timetable & Content

Our Tutors

Our Musical Theatre Summer School tutor team consists of industry professionals and current teaching staff of Trinity Laban's Musical Theatre programme. 

All tutors have established track records of working in a range of roles across the West End including musical direction, singing, and choreography.

I enjoyed being taught by those who are part of the musical theatre industry. Having the time to ask them questions proved very useful to understanding what a career in musical theatre entails as well as what it takes to get there
