Musical theatre

With an international reputation for excellence, our BA (Hons) Musical Theatre (Triple Threat) course provides you with strong industry links, guaranteed performance opportunities, and the ability to work with professional practitioners as you study dance, acting and singing. You will receive training in every aspect of Musical Theatre and focus on developing your technique and skills in acting, singing and dance equally. You will access vocal masterclasses, one-to-one singing lessons, ensemble, singing and acting through song. Guaranteed performance opportunities in fully-staged productions where students get to showcase public performances with professional production teams for regional tour and major art festivals as well as premiering new commissions.

At the end of your first year, you will take part in an ensemble showcase presentation assessment and an informal audition to be placed into one of two companies during your second year. These auditions lead to a public performance in The Alexandra Theatre, Bognor Regis in your second year. Masterclasses given by visiting professionals, in areas as diverse as stage combat and costume making, provide exciting opportunities to work with leading practitioners. Our Spotlight accreditation offers you discounted graduate membership to largest casting resource in the United Kingdom, inclusion in a dedicated ‘graduate’ section of their website, access to their dedicated one-to-one career advice sessions, and much more.
