The BA Musical Theatre programme is for progressive and talented students who are dedicated to developing their skills in acting, singing, dance and music. We’re looking for the next cohort of students who want to train with us alongside industry professionals, and who aspire towards a career in the competitive musical theatre industry.
This programme is distinctive in that it offers conservatoire-level tuition in four disciplines – acting, singing, dance and music. We want to work with people who are original, talented, committed and inspired by collaboration; performers of the future who will celebrate and share their skills in a wide range of professional contexts.
Your education here will begin with a focus on process, leading to high quality performance opportunities alongside industry workshops and showcase. Our aim is that you will graduate from this programme as a confident, versatile artist ready to work in the profession.
RCS is the only conservatoire in Europe to offer programmes in dance, drama, music, production and film. We encourage collaboration between all art forms and as a student here, you will regularly enjoy opportunities to work with those from other disciplines and programmes. You will also have the opportunity to learn with industry professionals during your studies, benefiting from the Royal Conservatoire’s close relationships with Scotland’s national artistic companies, alongside UK and International creatives.
Our graduates consistently gain industry representation and continue to work across the arts and entertainment sectors. Graduates can currently be seen performing in the West End, on Broadway, in national and international tours, with national companies, regional theatres, and in a variety of television and film projects. Many of our graduates also go on to create their own companies and produce work, effecting changes within the industry in positive and meaningful ways.
