BA (Hons) Musical Theatre
Take centre stage at university by perfecting your stage technique with internationally experienced academics and build your professional networks with established theatre companies.
Solent’s performance degree immersed me into a varied and exciting course of study. I explored a variety of performance techniques including body and voice skills, musical theatre, and approaches to stage and screen acting.
I was given the opportunity to gain a vast amount of experience through various recorded and live performance projects, as well as industry work experience teaching at a variety of local infant and primary schools and working professionally on the feature film The Pugilist.
During second year when I was cast as Sally Durant-Plummer in the musical Follies. It was my first time being cast as a lead in a musical and from the casting, throughout the rehearsal stages and finally the performance week, Follies for me was one of the most educational and rewarding experiences I have taken part in throughout my training.
I am about to start working in an administrative role for a local college, while studying for my PTLLS (preparing to teach in the lifelong learning sector) with the end goal to become a lecturer of performance for the college.
I am also attending casting workshops, applying for a variety of stage and screen roles and auditioning for local pantomimes. I am also working on setting up my own performance academy that will offer a variety of classes to children and adults.
