Are you ready to level up your musical theatre performance?


Are you involved in musical theatre in the Waikato (or want to be) and know that you have untapped potential?

Do you miss being able to invest the time into your passion to help your performance be the best that it can be?

Are you frustrated at the lack of musical theatre training opportunities for adults? Hello! I'm still here! 

This is the class for you!

This weekly musical theatre class for performers aged 18+ is an opportunity to develop your craft through ongoing training in a fun, focused and friendly environment.

You will learn specialist skills for singing, dancing and acting from Scot and guest tutors, plus the all important (and often ignored) practice of putting it together. You'll gain valuable practice sharing your work with the group and getting feedback, support, snaps and connection with your community of musical theatre performers.

Whether you're looking to:

  • Grow your performance confidence

  • Develop your skillset to more than “just” a singer/dancer/actor

  • Be considered for lead/different/featured roles

  • Be a leader in your theatre community
  • Gain the experience and confidence to be cast in productions

  • Extend your strengths and improve your weaknesses

  • Pursue higher education or a career in musical theatre

This class has been made for you.
