Something Old, Something New – The Musical Theatre Revue
Our flagship show returns for its 10th year. Featuring the whole college, but devised around our 2nd years as they start their search for agent representation. With choreography by some of the UK’s most exciting MT choreographers, it’s guaranteed to be an entertaining evening
The 45th Marvellous Chatterley Village Fete
Reuniting director Christian Durham with designer Stewart J Charlesworth, we are delighted to be producing this Perfect Pitch musical. Susannah Pearse and Rebecca Applin have written a hilarious, heart-warming musical comedy in the style of The Vicar of Dibley and Jam and Jerusalem. When the humble village of Chatterley is threatened with annihilation by supermarket giant Tasdall’s, all the inhabitants must band together to figure out a way to preserve their beloved community.
Packed with lovable characters and a lively musical theatre score, this quintessentially British musical will feature the whole college, with leads being played by the graduating year.
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!
The Time Machine
This new musical adaptation of the H G Wells classic novel, will be the 9th musical commissioned by The MTA.
With a book by Nick Stimson and words and music by Annemarie Lewis Thomas, come and meet our 1st years in this show especially written for them.
