Musical Theatre

Enter staff are industry experts in the musical theatre field. Enter offers an array of opportunities ranging from individual classes to large scale musical theatre productions. Students who study on our Musical Theatre programme participate in well-known musical theatre repertoire and new musical theatre writing.  Classes are designed to produce triple-threat performers and many of our students go straight into the industry or into universities and performing arts conservatoires. Classes cater for children between 3 and 25 years of age.

Enter musical theatre students are excellent and we have built an exceptional reputation in the genre. Students develop acute performance and rehearsal skills and techniques as well as a disciplined and sustainable work ethos.

We are a recognised examination centre for examinations in musical theatre, providing students with both a fun and academic environment for learning essential performance and life skills.
