BA ( Hons) in Musical Theatre Performance

The BA (Hons) in Musical Theatre Performance is validated by University of Chester and students who successfully complete the programme will be eligible for a University of Chester award.

The Course Fees are £9,000 per annum and students can apply for finance through Student Finance England.

Who are we looking for?

We are seeking talented performers with potential in singing, acting and dancing. Entry to the course is by audition. All students must apply through UCAS. (UCAS CODE T649)

This three year course will provide specialist vocational studies for a career in the professional world of musical theatre and performance. Its purpose is to nurture and develop the practical skills required to secure and sustain employment as a musical theatre performer.

The curriculum reflects the nature of work within the theatre which requires technical competence, artistry and creativity. There will be an emphasis on practical training and this embodied knowledge is supported by engagement in theoretical studies. The curriculum consists of 15 modules which include technical and artistic singing, acting and dance skills, a history of musical theatre, health and fitness, in house productions and a negotiated study or dissertation. The course is delivered in a variety of ways including tutor-led studio based practical classes, lectures, web seminars, workshops, masterclasses, independent personal practice and visits from current leading practitioners from the world of professional theatre.

Students will focus on the three main skill areas of singing, acting and dance, with an emphasis on singing and acting, supported by dance. The modules facilitate both breadth and depth of learning and are designed to encourage progressively more autonomy, allowing students to develop intellectually as independent, critically reflective practitioners.
