Our training is intensive, practical, studio-based and focused towards industry. Public performance is an intrinsic element of the training we offer, with performances by second and third year students every year.
Nurturing individual voices is a priority of the discipline, 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.
