This course encourages an intellectual and practice-based interrogation of musical theatre in addition to giving the actor/singer a respect for the various demands of written text and musical score. This course is intended for those students who have a practical expertise in performance and wish to develop these skills in actor-singer training further to enable entry to the professional world of performance. The individual exploration of 'sense over sound' is a notable and distinctive feature of this course. The important work of Feldenkrais supports both the physical and vocal (sung and spoken) development of our actor-singers. In addition to the acquisition of a strong performance discipline, the course seeks to develop each student as an inspired self-thinking practitioner with the ability to devise and perform original musical theatre works - much of this pioneering work will be completed in conjunction with Mercury Musicals.
