Music Theatre (NASDA)
Captivate audiences throughout the world and make the best use of your talents in musicals, plays, concerts, TV and film productions. You could find yourself performing, presenting, entertaining at events, directing or producing performances, working behind the scenes, or in education.
To be a successful performer in today’s industry you need to be versatile and dynamic. Ara is proud to offer high quality performance training at the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art (NASDA).
Taught by a team of experienced performers and teachers who are dedicated to helping you make the most of your career, this highly regarded degree will equip you with the skills needed to succeed in a number of branches of the performing arts.
You'll gain practical experience in performance and production work in key theatre disciplines such as acting, singing and dance, as well as studies in spoken voice, music theory, theatre history, technical theatre skills and research methods.
After gaining a solid foundation in these skills, you’ll refine your programme of study in your second and third years to suit your strengths and interests. This allows you to focus on any number of genres that require strong actors, or to specialise in music theatre.
Performance and work-integrated learning is a big part of the degree, especially in the third year. This involves researching, planning and preparing for performances (such as plays, revues, applied theatre, musicals, concerts and cabaret) in the same manner as a self-employed performing artist.
