Musical Theatre Beginners Classes
20% Early Bird Discount if deposit is paid by 1st April. Use Code STAGE20.
New students get a full refund if you don’t enjoy the first class (as long as you let us know by 1pm the next day).
Stage & the City’s Musical Theatre Beginners classes are designed for those passionate about performing in a professional, fun, friendly and supportive class atmosphere. Working alongside industry professionals, you will learn medleys from the most memorable musicals such as Les Miserable, Jersey Boys, 42nd Street, Waitress, Mamma Mia & Wicked to name but a few.
You will learn dance and movement to your vocals and create amazing storytelling performances which will then give you the option to perform in one of our many up and coming showcases. You don’t have to be the best singer, dancer or actor, but if you have charisma, a love for musical theatre and of course a love of performing, then this is the class for you.
During this forthcoming term we will also be work-shopping the idea of “lift off”: that special moment that bridges the character’s transition from natural dialogue into song.
This Musical Theatre Beginners class is designed for adults who either have some experience in musical theatre or are beginners but are willing to get stuck in for one and a half hours a week. For those with no previous experience who cannot commit to one and a half hours a week, we suggest you do the Introduction to Musical Theatre course, (which is only one hour long) before this one. However, if you are unable to make Tuesday evenings for the Beginners please get in touch as we may be able to bring you up to speed with a master class. Please e-mail email@example.com.
During this course, you will learn to sing in 3 part harmony while dancing and acting at the same time. There will also be lots of opportunities to improve your musicality while singing in the group and stepping into solos if you so wish, all of which will make you feel like a true triple threat!
On the final day of term you will have the opportunity to invite family and friends to an informal showing of everything that you have worked towards.
