MA Musical Theatre

The MA Musical Theatre (Musical Direction/Performance/Community Practice – pathway open from Sept 2025) is a distinct programme offering bespoke specialist training at level 7. The programme is designed to extend and interrogate creative thought and theatrical boundaries, encouraging inter-disciplinary approach, imaginative application and the development of creative confidence and professional identity. The programme offers the opportunity to redefine musical theatre as a genre, moving beyond existing boundaries, through conceptual development, experimentation, innovation, and reinvention. Students will follow one of the three available pathways in Musical Direction, Performance or Community Practice – pathway open from Sept 2025.

Applications for 2024 entry are open (please note that the programme is subject to validation).
