This double-session course takes students through the entire process of rehearsing and performing a major musical – the first Theatre Lab show to be performed in the theatre at our new location. The course replicates a typical professional production experience, from learning the notes through taking the bow. Issues explored include vocal production, how to act a song, how to sing a scene, defining the arc of a character, and all other aspects of singing and acting a musical role. No experience is necessary, but major roles will be assigned by audition. Chorus roles will not require auditions, but prospective students will have to demonstrate that they can carry a tune. This year the course culminates in four public performances of Blood Brothers, which boasts the third-longest run in West End history and a devoted cult following for its great music and story. Many roles for actors and singers of all types, at all levels of experience. At over 100 hours of training plus live performance, this is one of our most cost-effective courses.
