a musical in a week!

  • Upstage Musical Productions produce one of the most exciting and innovative week-long musical theatre courses for schools in the UK and internationally.

  • Also a fantastic weekend musical course for boarding schools. We specialise in producing and rehearsing original, contemporary musicals for up to 25 students of 8-10 years and 11-14 years respectively.

  • Students perform specially-written musical shows that feature songs drawn from many cultures across the world (jazz, rap, South American, Carribean, Asian). The shows also feature a strong narrative with challenging physical movement.

  • The week-long and weekend programmes introduce young people to acting, singing and dancing providing a platform for them to work as a team towards a performance.

Upstage Musical Productions offers special courses in live theatre for students aged 8-15 years. The programme teaches theatrical techniques through a rehearsal-based structure, promoting self-expression, confidence and teamwork. We cover improvisational skills, characterisation and the art of story-telling through acting. The course is challenging, creative and great fun and has proved to be a great transitional project from primary to secondary school.

The week-long course is available during half terms, Easter breaks and the summer holidays and the weekend course is available throughout the year.

Upstage Dancer“A huge thank you for bringing the course to the Victoria Hall. It was fantastic to see it and we’ve had excellent feedback from students, parents and our staff. We were really pleased to see an all-singing, all-dancing musical taking place and to such a high standard. I do hope that we can work with you again next year on another musical.”
