MA Musical Theatre Creatives

This is an individually-tailored MA for anyone interested in creating new musical theatre and pursuing a professional career as a creative in the industries, whether as a composer, writer, choreographer, lyricist or something that has yet to be defined. This unique course focuses on students’ particular needs to develop skills in their field (composition, dance and dramaturgy), whilst simultaneously generating work as a collective with other creatives across the MAs. Working with leading institutions from across the North and with practitioners that include composers, lyricists, and book-writers (the creative team of a musical), students will leave the course with a portfolio of work to take into the industry, to peers to build a creative team with, and leave with a unique artistic voice to shape the theatre of tomorrow.

MA Dramaturgy

Delivered in close collaboration with Leeds Playhouse, this programme focuses on the development of new work and individual artistry through collaborative practice. Whether as a practitioner shaping theatre though storytelling, dance or music, or as a dramaturg in a literary department dissecting text, students will be introduced to a multitude of ways of creating new theatre. Students will leave this MA with not only a comprehensive understanding of how things have been done, but with a vision for how they want to do things in the future.

MA Musical Direction

This MA is designed to fully-prepare highly-skilled musicians to embark upon a career as a Musical Director. The course encourages students to interrogate the role of the Musical Director and redefine it for themselves, through the continued collaborative, student-led development of new work across the year. With collaboration and individual artistry at the heart of these MAs, students will leave this course not only fully-equipped to adapt to the changing face of theatre, but also with the skill set and tenacity required to drive that change.
