Free Musical Theatre Summer School -16-19's

Fully funded 3 week courses for 16-19's

Visit our new college website for full info! Throughout the summer holidays we offer a choice of two FREE musical theatre courses for performers aged 16-18 years. Depending on age and experience, students undertake a Level 2 or Level 3 qualification in Performing Arts. This is a fully funded course and enables the participants to perform in a full length juke-box musical theatre performance of Little Shop of Horrors extracts. This is a very rewarding experience but does require commitment, energy and passion from any young people wanting to take part. There is a large amount of work involved to achieve these qualifications and required standards of performance in such a short space of time. This year the courses run from Friday 2nd August - Friday 16th August.

They will build a foundation in all these areas and develop a practical and theoretical understanding, as well as developing their own skills and techniques. They will apply these skills to performances, focusing on the integration of all disciplines.
