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.
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.
