Musical Theatre

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 a year. 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.

Our Musical Theatre productions are always a sell-out and 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; Louis Maskell (Tony in the UK Tour of West Side Story); Melanie Brown (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - West End) and Carly Thoms (Liesl in the International London Palladium production of The Sound of Music); Stephen Metcalfe (Head of music for Cameron Mackintosh).

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.

NB: New people are welcome to join after half term, as the current production will be finished and the ensembles will begin rehearsals again. There is no waiting list, and everyone is welcome. There is a termly fee of £75.
