Oh My, Nellie Bly

Book by Nick Stimson
Music & Lyrics by Annemarie Lewis Thomas
Directed by Simon Kane
Choreographed by Chris Whittaker

Designed by Stewart Charlesworth

Oh My, Nellie Bly is The MTA’s 8th commissioned original musical.  It is the riotous true life story of America’s first female journalist. A trailblazing 19th century feminist who was afraid of no one. Author of “Around the World in 72 Days” and the infamous “ Ten Days in a Madhouse” this is story that really needs to be told. . . and needs to be told in a musical. Written and performed for our first years

Showcases 2018

As always we will be presenting two industry showcases to launch our graduating year out into the ‘real world’. A straight Acting Showcase on Thursday 13th September and a Musical Theatre Showcase on Friday 14th September, both at 1pm. Both will be directed by Tilly Vosburgh

Both showcases will last around an hour

Full details about the class of 2018 can be found here

Unlike all other UK college our students do a public performance at the end of every term.
The schedule for these performances are as follows:

2nd years perform a pantomime, whilst the 1st years make their debut in a play.

The entire college come together for our annual Musical Theatre Revue (this is the first opportunity for 2nd years to accept agent representation). The show is devised around our graduating year group.

The entire college come together to perform a musical (the lead roles will be played by those 2nd year students still seeking representation)

The 1st years will perform an original musical, commissioned by the college, whilst the 2nd years complete the course with an industry focussed acting showcase and a musical theatre showcase.

The final date of our academic year is also the date of our unique Gradunion…our annual graduation ceremony combined with our annual reunion of all MTA Ambassadors…because The MTA truly is – A College For Life!
