One Year Foundation Course in Musical Theatre
READ College’s full-time, vocational Foundation Course in Musical Theatre is now entering its 13th year, and graduate destinations have included Arts Ed, Mountview, Urdang, Bird, Laine, Central, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and many more. As a registered charity, we support students from under-represented and disadvantaged backgrounds with bursary funding towards tuition fees through our Access to The Arts ™ programme.
Students benefit from at least 27 hours of contact time per week, and study the full range of skills required in Musical Theatre under the guidance of leading industry tutors. Dance styles taught include ballet, jazz, commercial, tap and contemporary. Acting classes include improv, classical theatre, audition repertoire and physical theatre, and our singing training is made up of weekly one-to-one classes, ensemble singing, music theory and vocal tech. Students also benefit from regular masterclasses with guest tutors from all of the major degree-level courses, to prepare them for auditions.
Our Foundation students graduate with the Level 4 ATCL Diploma in Performing, awarded by Trinity College London.
Over 98% of our Musical Theatre graduates have been offered places at leading degree-level courses since the college opened, and our alumni can now be found working throughout the industry. Courses run from September to July, and applications are now open for our 2021 intake. Open days take place throughout the year, and we also run regular taster courses in the school holidays.
