Welcome to Stageworks College. We offer full-time training in acting and musical theatre for students interested in a career on stage or screen. Students on all our courses train five days a week and are taught by a large faculty of industry experts including professional actors, singers and performers.

All our students get a personalised training programme and train in small classes so they get the one-on-one contact time they deserve. We also stage public shows for all our students with professional touring sets, full wardrobe and in front of a live orchestra.

Our purpose-built performance studios are 50 minutes from London Kings Cross and we have student accommodation just around the corner from the college. Our graduates are now performing around the world including in Hamilton, Wicked, School of Rock, Tina the Musical and Cats.

Final Auditions for September 2018: Sunday 1st July

(Musical Theatre or Acting)

We offer two performing arts courses at Level 3. Choose to study on our Musical Theatre Foundation Course or our Acting Foundation Course. Both programmes are designed to prepare students with the technical skills and audition preparation to access performing arts college training or a degree course. We offer a FREE training option which combines your BTEC Level 3 Diploma with our technical training programme. In addition, students can choose to top-up their training hours with our audition preparation package. Our foundation courses have been running since 2003 with a 100% success rate of getting auditioning graduates into next stage training.

(Musical Theatre)

A musical theatre degree level course designed to prepare students to launch a successful and sustainable performing arts career. This intensive and affordable course provides specialist training in singing, dancing and acting, alongside regular professional performance opportunities and agency representation. Every aspect of the course is designed to maximise student employment prospects when they graduate. Alongside the technical training programme we teach students how to promote and manage themselves as well as developing their audition repertoire, showreels, vocal recordings and personal marketing.
