Music Theatre encompasses the three principal disciplines of singing, acting and dance. At the VCA these are taught as individual crafts and also in combination.
Study Music Theatre at the VCA
Our training is intensive, practical, studio-based and industry focused. Public performance is a core part of the training we offer, with performances by second and third year students every year. Nurturing individual voices is a priority, as is developing new Australian music theatre work. Since 2011, the VCA has supported two new works, Dreamsong and A Little Touch of Chaos. Both were written, developed and premiered at the VCA.
Music Theatre has a strong focus on the Australian industry, particularly in Melbourne, with industry leaders engaged as guest lecturers, music directors and advisors for the discipline.
Training in a studio environment
Our students work creatively and collaboratively to explore the discipline. Studio practice underpins our training programs, with an emphasis on collaboration and public performance seasons.
