Performing Arts & Musical Theatre
Were you born to perform? Do you love acting or the thought of a career in musical theatre? Does performing in front of a large audience or perfecting something in a studio give you a thrill?
You may want to play the next leading role in a West End or Broadway production or begin developing your screen acting? We can give you a head start in this highly competitive industry, by teaching you techniques and perfecting your abilities in music, acting, singing and style.

The performing arts team draws on a wide range of elements to bring out the best in you and get you to specialise. Our very practical courses mean you will be involved in performance both within the college and performing shows at external venues around the city. This year the students took their show on the road and performed at many schools around Southampton, where they were very well received.
There are many career paths open to you in areas such as dance, holiday entertaining, cruise ship performances, music and media.

Many of our level 3 students go on to university to further their studies and some progress to specific drama / dance schools in London or abroad. One shining example is Lindsey Goodridge who has progressed to Cambridge University to study Dance.
