Course Content

  • Each troupe member, with the help of our directors, choose a character and a scene from a musical they have always wanted to play.
  • During rehearsals they will be directed in this scene which will include some scripted work as well as the actual musical number itself.
  • If appropriate the other members of the troupe will form the other characters that are needed for these scenes.
  • This means all members will have their own big number that they are the “lead” in and the opportunity to play a wide range of other characters in the other scenes that their fellow members are working on.
  • Some members may prefer to work on duets or chorus numbers rather than sing solo and that is absolutely fine as well.
  • Movement and dance will also be rehearsed as well as the singing aspect of each number.
  • Over time and depending on the commitment of each individual everybody will have the opportunity to work on further scenes that they can be lead in.
  • Our troupe rehearsals take into consideration the fact that most adults have busy lives but also gives the opportunity to be really pushed if your time allows.
  • Our performers get to play a wide range of characters in a variety of musical theatre styles ranging from cabaret through to contemporary pop musicals. They are not restricted to one musical style.
