Welcome to the Musical Theatre Academy

The MTA is unique. We offer the UK’s first, fast track programme that is focused on getting you industry-ready in 2 years, rather than the traditional 3 years.

Entry to The MTA is by audition – no qualifications are necessary other than an overwhelming desire to work as a performer. Whilst we specialise in Musical Theatre, our ambassadors are equally at home on the screen and in straight plays (both contemporary and classical).

If you have a dream, the ambition and the drive, then The MTA is for you, because everyone here feels the same way. There are no career teachers at The MTA, only working professionals who want to teach the next generation of performers.  They can, and as you can see from our stats do,  give you the skills to realise your potential.
