Work Ready Guarantee
Musical theatre is a multi-disciplinary art form and within this course you will be given a ‘real world’ experience by becoming a member of The Company. The highly disciplined environment of The Company is designed to promote ‘work-readiness’. As well as being a performer, all Company members will have an off-stage role (to encourage transferable and other employability skills), leading acting, singing or dance rehearsals, becoming a coach to support skills development in acting, singing or dancing, working alongside technical support, contributing to the creativity of a production and working alongside staff and students. You will gain hands-on experience of what it takes to work in any field of musical theatre.
