This accelerated, two-year BA (Hons) Musical Theatre Performance degree is awarded by Coventry University. This degree is a first for conservatoire-style training in England and is aimed at those wishing to have a professional career in musical theatre.
At the ICMT, our training is rigorously designed to hone and expand your existing skillset in a safe and nurturing environment. We will furnish you with the technical, practical, and creative expertise required to succeed in today’s professional industry.
Our faculty includes current performers, directors, choreographers, musical directors, singers, and leading practitioners in their respective fields. Together, they will guide you through an intensive practical-based course covering all the major musical theatre disciplines of acting, singing, and dance.
You will receive practical training at the ICMT studios daily, working on your craft through an extensive series of technical classes, workshops, and performance projects spanning the length and breadth of musical theatre. At the ICMT, we know that having a successful performing career requires hours of dedication and practice.
Your contact hours and professional experiences will match (and in some cases exceed) that of a typical 3-year musical theatre degree course. Our training celebrates individuality in small class sizes where you are a name, not a number.
"It was an amazing opportunity to work with some of the industry’s finest performers. Class sizes were small which meant more 1 to 1 contact time.
The tutors were incredible to work with and gave us the most current and relevant training possible."
