AT A GLANCE
Immerse yourself in the 'triple threat' disciplines of acting, singing and dancing while exploring the traditions and contemporary practices of musical theatre.
Musical Theatre at UCW was awarded a 100% overall satisfaction score in the 2019 National Student Survey.
Performance is at the heart of this course. It provides a rigorous programme of creative, theoretical and professional development, with its training in singing, dancing, acting and other key performance skills enhanced by an understanding of the theatre industry and how to secure roles and work to expected industry standards.
As well as developing your artistry and creativity, you will gain an understanding of core musical theatre disciplines from a theoretical perspective by examining key practitioners and pieces and by viewing the genre from the viewpoints of its cultural, political and digital developments.
This approach means that you will be able to understand and interpret a broad and exciting repertoire of musical theatre, and also be well-prepared for postgraduate study and employment in related roles.
"Unlike many traditional institutions, both in the UK and US, UCW offers an innovative and practical approach to training while cultivating and harnessing an individual experience for each student."
