    I know what you mean, I have always wanted to get to Musical theatre and am auditioning at the mo, friends of mine have done shows and tours and get bored honestly I think that can be the same with any job, and if it is something you truely wnat then go for it. I am Royal Academy all the way, great course, great tutors and gives you great contacts in the MT field. have my recall there this week, so fingers crossed!

    I did apply to audition there but i was worried that the course was a bit alternative for what i wanted to do and the stucture sounded very similar to my drama school. its a great place though, just not sure if its for me x

    Guildhall and Mountview are the best schools for MT.

    Arts Ed has one of the best reputations for Musical Theatre but I don't think they do Postgrads. I know they do short courses though.

    Check out the website www.artsed.co.uk

    They've got loads of different short courses going on and sometimes they're held in the evening-won't interfere with auditions!!

    Hi there Laura,

    If you want to go to a good, post graduate course, I can recommend you HTS (Hertfordshire Theatre School).

    It's friendly, warm and very VERY grounded. I graduate in June after three years and could not have chosen a more dedicated school.

    Please check out the website and please feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

    Hope this helps,

    Daniella Joseph

    RAM. West end or alternative. They don't just do alternative stuff. Mind you, what do you mean? The trends are always changing.

    Really, it depends who is on the course and what you want to work on really. You will find at the RAM that you end up working on what you are best at doing and then a bit more to broaden your horizons. Plus, the contacts you make are very very good. Agents, directors etc...

    I am, of course, bias because I went there. Also, I am sure there are other great courses.

    xo Hope

    I went to the London School of Musical Theatre. The course there is a one year intensive Musical Theatre course and like said about the RAM course, the contacts you make there are brilliant. Also, at the end of the course it's unique in that they invite agents in to the school in the last couple of weeks and everyone has an individual audition with them rather than inviting them to an end of year showcase. You do still get to do an end of year show in the weeks prior to the last two and shows throughout the year and the tutors are excellent. Well worth looking into and I am very biased!!!!!
