Musical Theatre Overview
Tring Park's Musical Theatre Course provides Sixth Form students looking to forge a career in the performing arts with a strong understanding and knowledge of technique in the three essential specialist skills of Singing, Dancing and Acting.
The course is both contemporary and realistic, giving students the best possible chance of success as a versatile performer. Regular collaboration with leading industry practitioners inspires students and encourages fresh thinking, as well as providing links with the industry both during and beyond their training.
Students from our Musical Theatre Course regularly take part in a programme of performances, workshops and master classes designed to build skills in every aspect of the profession. Students perform in Tring Park's Markova Theatre, as well as a variety of venues across London and the UK.
Musical Theatre Course students have worked on musicals which are performed both at Tring Park's own Markova Theatre and, on occasion, at professional London Theatres. Recent productions include Guys and Dolls, Gershwin's Crazy for You, The Boy Friend and Jesus Christ Superstar. Students are directed by guest professional practitioners promoting valuable links with the industry.
