The Academy’s intensive one-year course trains postgraduate (or equivalent) students for a career in musical theatre. It aims to provide a direct link into the profession, from theoretical class work via practical opportunities.

Students have individual singing lessons, repertoire coaching and spoken word tutorials, as well as classes in voice and the spoken word, extended vocal techniques, dance (including jazz and tap), movement, acting, singing, improvisation, history of musical theatre, musicality, audition preparation and project work. Students also take part in masterclasses and workshops with visiting professionals, and in internal competitions.
