Stage & the City’s beginners Musical Theatre 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.

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. 

Perform in our Charity Showcase Extravaganza taking place on 4th July, celebrating Stage & the City’s 5th Anniversary. Join in January and if you continue into the Spring you will have this exciting opportunity.
