Creative Industries Festival
Level 3 Extended Diploma
The Musical Theatre pathway covers the diverse training required for progression into the Musical Theatre industry. You will take workshops in vocal technique and a variety of dance styles, as well as focusing on a broad range of acting skills including improvisation, physical theatre, devising and script work. Public performances take place in our main house theatre, working alongside production students, simulating industry practice and standards. This will prepare you for a successful career or for further training in higher education.
Who Runs The World?
During the last few months our 2nd Year Musical Theatre students have worked exceptionally hard to continue their training, albeit ‘virtually’. They have explored new ways of working practically; developing acting and voice technique through zoom meetings, maintained fitness and dance technique via live streaming and learnt a wealth of new digital technology to create performance. The results of this are shown here in ‘Who Runs The World?’ A showcase created, performed, edited by our 2nd year Musical Theatre Students, in ‘Lockdown’. An unprecedented process for an unprecedented time but one in which I am personally, incredibly proud of them for demonstrating their perseverance, dedication and commitment to their practice. They are an inspiration. Well Done. We hope you enjoy.
Programme Lead - Level 3 Extended Diploma in Acting & Musical Theatre.
Next year I’m progressing on to do the L4 Diploma in Performance at Northbrook MET.
My experience on the Extended Diploma course has been incredible. I’ve met my closest friends, had professional training and although we’ve had our ups and downs with ourselves and as a class, as many aspiring performers do, the course and the tutors prepare you for industry life and give you the support you need to progress as a person and as a performer. Thank you Northbrook!
Next year I will be taking a gap year to decide what path I want to take within the future.
Northbrook has been such a surreal experience and has given me professional training within musical theatre and has developed me as a person. As well as this I have also met an amazing group of people who I class as some of my close friends and people that I wish the best for. Northbrook overall has been incredible and a place I would highly recommend for others.
In September I am going to be progressing onto the BA Hons Degree Musical Theatre course at LMA in London. I have had so many incredible opportunities and experiences working with different people at Northbrook from my incredible friends in the tech team to working with the amazing actors on Mother Courage, these past two years have allowed me to create strong bonds and friendships that I will take onto the next stage of my life.
As of September I am beginning my BA Hons Degree in Musical Theatre at LMA in London.
I have had an incredible experience within my time at Northbrook Met, I have had professional training and amazing performance experiences. I have also met and worked with amazing performers, who have become some of my closest friends. I can’t wait to embark on my new adventure but I will miss my tutors and class immensely.
Next year I will be taking a gap year to travel and then the following year will audition for drama schools to study Acting. This course has really helped me improve in all areas of performance and really stretched me as a performer with pushing me in new skills, while building my confidence.
As of September I am going into an apprentice role at Jacobs Steel as an estate agent. I wish to expand my knowledge and grow and develop with the company and my role. My time at Northbrook MET has been indescribable, I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have been able to develop not only as a performer but as myself! I’ve had opportunities to work with the most amazing tutors who push you to be your best in every way. I also have met some amazing performers who I will miss massively. I wish them all the best on their next adventures!!
Next year I am very excited to continue my musical theatre training at Northbrook, and focus more on my dance training.
Throughout my two years at Northbrook, I have grown so much confidence and such a huge passion for musical theatre. I also discovered I really enjoy dance and it is something I’ve improved in a lot throughout the course. This has made me even more excited to continue training at Northbrook due to the training standard as well as the support we receive.
I am currently deciding what path I will be taking in September but hope to progress into the Musical Theatre industry at some point in the future. Northbrook has given me so many amazing opportunities that I will never forget. I have met some incredible people and had the chance to collaborate with people from all across the creative and theatre departments. It has really given me the tools to be able to progress onto whatever I want to do next year and has set me up with a lot of skills that I can take into whatever I choose to do next.
From September I will be progressing onto BA (Hons) Musical Theatre and continuing my training at Northbrook. My time on this course has moulded me into this performer and person I am today. I have been able to develop and improve in ways I never thought I would with the support of the tutors and have created some lifelong memories with the incredible people I have met. I’m excited to use these skills and continue my journey at Northbrook however will miss my classmates massively! Thank you Northbrook MET!
Training at Northbrook Met has been such a great experience, I’ve learnt many skills that I will carry with me throughout the rest of my training and career. During my time at Northbrook I have developed not only as a performer but as an individual. As well as this I have met some amazing people and have made friendships I hope will last a lifetime. I would highly recommend Northbrook for anyone who wants to further their training in performing and become the best they can be.
