Think of your favourite musical. Take a little singing, throw in some dance, add a sprinkle of drama and there you have it – Musical Theatre.
This course will be delivered via Zoom each Tuesday evening and will suit anybody who loves the idea of performing in a musical but has no or little experience. For those that have already completed an Introduction course with Stage & the City, or an alternative elsewhere, we suggest you look at our Musical Theatre Montage course.
Over the 6 weeks you will work with Stage & the City’s Creative Director, Mark Short and Musical Director Jack Holliday who will guide you through a selection of musical theatre numbers, working on the essential components of acting, singing and dance.
