Designed for students with a serious interest in the performing arts, the Musical Theatre Workshop trains performers through skills based classes and by producing shows. Aims are to train young musical theatre performers to develop confidence, teamwork and co-operation, promote an enjoyment of drama and theatre, and develop skills in movement, dance, acting, singing and voice. The course also covers an overview of back stage: costume and prop making, set design, lighting and sound, though practical applications of lighting and sound can only be demonstrated when we are in the theatre.
In order to maintain a high standard, performers must audition for this course and it must be noted that if a performer is accepted on the course there must be a high level of commitment and attendance.
Please note, in order for Centre Stage to maintain these standards we can only take those who show particular promise. Students should therefore be advised that they might not be accepted on the course. If this is the case, then we recommend that the student should continue hourly classes in order to further develop their skills.
An audition is required for entry onto this course. Click here for details.
