What will I learn?

The BA Musical Theatre programme at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland offers practical, high level vocational education for exceptionally talented students who are dedicated to becoming highly skilled and employable professional artists. We are unique because we offer a quadruple-threat, conservatoire-level tuition in acting, singing, dance and music.We offer an extraordinary combination of world class facilities, professional connections, and opportunities for collaboration, at a level and intensity that’s not available elsewhere. We keep all class sizes small so every student is nurtured and advanced through individual teaching and mentoring. You will train as a truly multi-disciplinary artist, so you will need to demonstrate high-level acting, singing, and dance ability, as well as additional instrumental skills. You will be very open to new ideas, ways of learning, and collaboration.You need to be eager to perform, ambitious, intellectually agile, and a fantastic communicator with a story to tell. You will spend time working with directors and writers on new musical theatre, as well as traditional and contemporary productions. You’re also likely to find yourself working in professional venues and rehearsal spaces, and we try and give you as many opportunities as possible to engage with the industry. In your final year you’ll present an industry showcase in Glasgow and London, and (by audition) for our North American students, in New York city.You will work regularly with students from across RCS; our music students form the orchestra of all of our major shows, production students provide the off-stage and backstage support, and, as well as filming with our film students in our studios and on location, you may find yourself on BBC production sets, with guidance and support from BBC Scotland.
