Musical Theatre Workshop (MTW) is an intensive workshop for young learners that aims to introduce and develop the triple threat skills required of professional musical theatre performers. The week long course is led by theatre professionals from Priscilla Queen of The Desert The Musical and Singin’ in the Rain. During a very full week we focus on all thing Musical Theatre, including the integrating of dance training, voice training and acting training. We teach varied and age appropriate material, culminating in a small open class on the last day so that parents can watch some of what we have been doing in the week. ‘MTW’ is not only for aspiring performers, but it is also for anyone who wants something creative and exciting to do during their school holidays.
