Training Opportunity

BA Hons Musical Theatre 1 Year Top-Up

Validated by the University of Portsmouth

This innovative, one-year programme has been designed to enable committed performers to extend their understanding of musical theatre production. The course offers students and practitioners the opportunity to explore aspects of musical theatre not usually addressed in vocational training and provides access to further HE study and enhanced employment opportunity when considering career progression.

The course programme is flexible and adaptable and has been designed to accommodate professional working patterns. Following a two-day Induction at LTA’s Performing Arts Centre, students meet with tutors on one Sunday a month at a Campus Study Day (CSD) for a day of workshops, seminars, lectures and one-to-one tutorials. A comprehensive, online tutorial system ensures students receive full support and guidance from Personal tutors as they work on written research projects in the periods between CSDs.

Running from September to May each year, the course comprises three units: Research and Development in Musical Theatre Practice; Critical Analysis of Musical Theatre in Production and Production in Musical Theatre Practice.


Entry requirements:
- A Trinity College London Professional Diploma in Musical Theatre, Dance or Acting (at least level 5)
- Or evidence of professional work in Musical Theatre.
