Musical Theatre (Year 1) Level 3 at North Kent College

Course description

The Level 3 Musical Theatre Diploma is a brand new unique one-year training programme here at The Miskin Theatre. 

Musical Theatre performers will collaborate closely with those on other Miskin Theatre programmes and work under intense conditions to learn the skills and discipline that their craft demands. 

The programme will encourage you to gain a broad variety of skills developing your dance technique and acting and singing musical theatre performance skills culminating in performances at the in-house Miskin Theatre and beyond. 

You will participate in ballet, contemporary, choreography, jazz and tap classes alongside complementary musical theatre workshops developing your ability to be a performer that can combine your acting, dance and singing skills leading to a variety of performance opportunities. 

The training is designed to challenge each performer to maximise their potential. You will also develop self awareness and personal development which will not only teach you essential skills for your pathway but also core life skills.
