Musical Theatre

**Why choose this course** As a musical theatre performer you must be passionate, creative, and able to form a deep connection with your story, character and audience. Guildford School of Acting (GSA) is one of the UK's leading accredited drama schools, providing dedicated conservatoire training within a purpose built environment on the University of Surrey campus. Successful entry on to GSA's MA Musical Theatre means you will be part of a carefully selected and committed ensemble of performers-in-training, equipped with the necessary self-discipline and motivation to master new skills and refine existing capabilities. **What you will study** The course is intensive and specifically designed to equip participants in the 'triple-threat' musical theatre disciplines of acting, singing and dancing. On this course we place a very strong emphasis on the practical acquisition of technical skills together with a dedicated focus on professional development. We provide you with opportunities to combine these skills into musical theatre rehearsal projects and public performances. You will attend seminars in contextual and theoretical studies, alongside masterclasses led by industry professionals in audition technique and repertoire. The skills you learn will be integrated through project work which includes studies of classic and contemporary musical theatre texts, a final public production led by a production team of industry professionals, and a West End showcase.
