Covidella and the Masked Ball
Pantoland is bereft, the pandemic has taken the wind out of the sails of even the most resilient fairy. Over at Panto HQ the phones just won’t stop ringing. Costumes are no longer covid compliant, the props are all problematic (not enough anti-bac), even the modes of transport are proving difficult. That is until they receive a letter from Covidella asking for some help.
A traditional pantomime that will get you shouting at the screen, and singing along at home.
School licenses are now available. One fee gives you the license for a week to play in all your classroom bubbles. You can even sell on the license via your school’s PTA in order to raise some much needed additional funds for your school

Something Old, Something New
The MTA’s flagship revue show. Featuring the whole college but devised around the graduating class of the year. This year more than ever we’re delighted to be returning to the Bridewell Theatre. Directed by Lucie Pankhurst with guest choreography by Alec Mann, Helen Siveter, Simon Hardwick, Philip Joel, Jaye Marshall, Ali James, Jreena Green and Mark Smith.
Limited in person seats will be available, however due to restrictions we will also be live streaming the show too. Tickets for the theatre will be offered to agencies and industry first. A link to online tickets will be posted 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!
