About the ICMT

A history of delivering world-class musical theatre training

About us

The International College of Musical Theatre (the ICMT) was co-founded by Kenneth Avery-Clark and Christie Miller and was initially called the American Musical Theatre Academy (AMTA), in London. Since then, we have grown internationally with programs in London, New York, Rome and Belfast.

In 2019 we rebranded to the International College of Musical Theatre (the ICMT). This was to reflect our international growth and the ever-growing international musical theatre market.

What we do

We offer world-class musical theatre training taught by West End and Broadway professionals. We bring in the very best talent from both sides of the Atlantic who know what it takes to succeed, and our mission is to provide the best training available anywhere in the world.

Our musical theatre courses are specially designed for those who wish to pursue a career as a musical theatre performer. Students will learn everything they need to know about how the musical theatre industry works today, and we want our students to know that their passion counts. We push them to their maximum potential in a safe and positive environment where their talent can grow to excellence. Our goal is to create a ‘no pain, no gain’ learning environment, which celebrates their strengths and addresses their weaknesses.

At the ICMT, we nurture our students and develop their talents in a positive and constructive environment. We teach our students the importance of discipline and the consistency required to succeed in this competitive industry.

We provide our students with practical based training so that they are ready to enter the professional world as soon as they graduate. When our students graduate, they never truly leave us, they become part of our family, and when they succeed, we succeed. We look forward to welcoming you to the ICMT family.

Our ethos

Our goal is to nurture our students’ growth and develop their talents in a positive and constructive environment. We encourage students to think with their own minds to develop the discipline necessary to succeed in this very competitive sector.

The ICMT promotes diversity, integration and equality, and various training solutions for all those who qualify for our courses.
