MUSICAL THEATRE

Liverpool is a vibrant city, tapping into the momentum and energy of a diverse creative scene that stems from a long history as an international port city. Musical Theatre continues to play an integral role in its ever-changing theatrical landscape.

This degree allows the study of Musical Theatre from performative, as well as directorial/production points of view. With us, you will study the creative and conceptual interactions that exist between words, music and movement, that underpin the threefold performative relationships between music, dance and acting that communicate and express the art form of Musical Theatre.  

You will explore core repertoire themes and historical context, and small-group practical seminars will allow you to develop dance and acting techniques. These will be underpinned by student-led tutorials and one-to-one singing lessons.

The course is led by a team of Musical Theatre specialists, who have first-hand production and performance experience - both in the West End and regional theatres - ensuring our students receive up-to-the-minute insights and guidance.
