Course: BA (Hons) in Performance – Musical Theatre (three years, full-time)
Mountview’s Musical Theatre course provides the student with a range of acting and performance opportunities underpinned by practical training in essential physical and vocal skills.
The course reflects the demands of the contemporary professional musical theatre for highly-skilled performers able to combine acting, singing and movement in their presentation of a seamless journey of character. In the training, therefore, equal emphasis is given to the disciplines of singing, dance, movement, voice and acting to enable the performer to flow from text into song and dance with no loss of character.
Over the first two years of study students work with directors, choreographers and musical directors to present studio performances of plays and musicals, including works from the Golden Age of Broadway, modern British and American standards and contemporary musicals. Students also have the opportunity to devise and create original work.
