Principles of Musical Theatre


A course with the final outcome of an exciting and enthralling production, pupils, school and teachers will all feel the benefit, as they celebrate the skills and achievements of the cast and crew.

Tailoring the performance to your requirements and the strengths of your pupils, we can either use an existing script, commission a purpose written script from one of our skilled scriptwriters, or even develop the ideas of the pupils into a coherent presentation through group work and improvisation.

Use of music, dance, masks, banners, colourful costumes, puppetry and an upbeat, energetic style all contribute to the course.


To create a professional quality musical theatre performance, developing and enhancing the skills and talents of the participating students.

To develop positive group work skills, which will be introduced and developed throughout the programme.

To develop self-confidence, a strong creative verbal and physical vocabulary, imaginative thinking.

To develop and enhance an understanding of the creative art form of theatre, and the process of drama.

To develop stagecraft skills, including acting. Depending on the length of the course, and specific modules chosen by the school, students will have opportunities to study mime, physical theatre, voice (projection and expression) singing for musicals, dance for musical theatre, scripted and improvised drama, current and historical literature and storytelling, puppetry and backstage arts.
