Full-Time Courses

Musical Theatre

Full time  |  2 Years (1 Year Option)

The Brent Street Musical Theatre course was created in 2013 and since then has grown to be one of the most in-demand Musical Theatre courses in the country. This year, we expand it to become a full time, two-year intensive course focused on musical theatre technique and performance at an elite level. The Diploma work is completed in the first year, offering a highly-practical and training-focussed experience for students in their second year.

Throughout the course, students undergo an ever-evolving timetable of classes including jazz, tap, hip hop, classical ballet, vocal technique, harmony/score reading, characterisation and stage acting. The Musical Theatre course is also performance based, working on two contrasting productions each year. We are proud that many graduates of this course have gone on to secure production contracts after their graduation, proving the rigorous yet rewarding nature of the course. As a Diploma level course, students are required to complete a wide variety of theory work based around analysis, evaluation and reflection. The combination of practical and theoretical classes makes for an all-round, intelligent performer with longevity.

We believe it’s a smart move for a developing performer to base themselves in Sydney, Australia’s hub of Musical Theatre, early in their career. Our Musical Theatre course truly is the ultimate performance-based course available to budding triple-threats.
