Prepare yourself to be a ‘triple threat’ musical theatre performer as you train in the disciplines of acting, singing and dancing while exploring the traditions and contemporary practices of musical theatre on stage and screen.
This course aims to develop versatile, imaginative and employable performers and will instil in you the skills needed to flourish both on and off the stage. You will enhance your practical skills in acting, singing, movement and dance, and also gain an understanding of the theatre industry and how to market yourself and secure professional roles or succeed in related fields.
As well as developing your artistry and creativity, you will gain an understanding of core musical theatre disciplines from a theoretical perspective by examining their key practitioners and pieces.
A host of industry experts contribute to this course alongside our experienced lecturers with specialist workshops and guest lectures. These have included working with some of the most exciting writers, directors, agents, actors and dancers from both the UK and abroad.
The UCW Academy of Performing Arts aims to replicate the professional workplace environment, so you will utilise our rehearsal studios and work individually and as part of an ensemble to perform in regional theatres and also further afield.
The numerous opportunities to perform in professional venues is what sets us apart. In the past three years, our students have performed week-long runs of Sister Act, A Christmas Carol and The Secret Garden at the Theatre Royal, Windsor. We also hold a spectacular end of year show every summer to give our students the chance to showcase their talents to theatre-lovers closer to home.
The UCW Academy of Performing Arts is part of our Knightstone Campus in the centre of Weston, but you will also be able to use all of our facilities at no extra charge. This includes access to the University Centre in the Winter Gardens on Weston seafront. The new facility has a higher education library, a café and modern learning spaces.
