The BYMT Musical Theatre classes are led by professional practitioners from the West End and Performing Arts Industry. We hold training in all three disciplines - Acting, Singing and Dancing and produce three full-scale Musical productions. We aim to give the students an insight into the professional practice of Musical Theatre and our students regularly complete their training at BYMT and go on to study Performing Arts further at Universities and top Drama Schools across the country.
In addition to weekly classes and rehearsals we regularly have invited special guests work with our students on unique Masterclasses that are exclusive to BYMT Musical Theatre.
Recent guests include Olivier and Tony Award winner Maria Friedman; Stephen Metcalfe (Head of music for Cameron Mackintosh including music supervising the Les Miserables film, the 25th anniversary production of The Phantom of the Opera and the most recent West End production of Miss Saigon); Helen Worthy (Coronation Street soapstar); Russell Smith Associates (West End agency); Louis Maskell (Tony in the UK Tour of West Side Story); Melanie Brown (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - West End); Carly Thoms (Liesl in the International London Palladium production of The Sound of Music) and Gabby Cocca (Cats at the London Palladium and currently in 42nd Street in the West End).
In addition to the weekly Musical Theatre training we also take our students to see a West End show every year and host our Musical Theatre Summer school during the last week of August.
We also offer dance classes held on a Saturday afternoon with an end of year Summer Dance Show in July.
