5710422 Musical Theatre Week

Tutor: Tom Newall

Location: Uppingham School

Anyone with a passion for singing and musical theatre will love Uppingham’s Summer School week based on the bright lights of Broadway and the finest songs from the West End stage. Open to all abilities, the week will involve learning some full company numbers as well as splitting into more specific groups for those with more experience, giving everyone the chance to perform to their ability and thereby have the most fun! 

You will be working together with everyone on the course and in smaller groups and there will be opportunities for individual coaching on show songs, acting and choreography. By the end of the week you will have made many new friends, learnt lots of skills and techniques and hopefully had lots of fun! 

Led by Musical Director Tom Newall, a team of professionals will help students work on their singing talents, choreography and acting skills to help bring the stage to life at the end-of-week performance. 

What do we do each day?

Each day will be spent taking part in a combination of singing, dancing and acting sessions aimed at polishing your musical theatre performance. Whilst everyone will have the chance to work to their strengths and interests, there will be opportunity for all to participate in full company singing and dancing routines. We will be working on a number of different songs for the final show, so will spend the day on these; whether that is working on dance break routines for the dancing groups, multiple part harmonies for the singing groups or even a whole scene from a famous show! We will also encourage you to spend some time devising and polishing your own pieces for the final show. For those of you who are residential, we will have all sorts of evening activities to keep the fun running all day. 

Who can attend?

One of the great things about Musical Theatre is that all talents and ages are needed to make the best possible show. Boys and girls aged between 8 and 16 and of all experience levels are welcome and everyone will have the chance to follow different routes through the week to cater for their own skills, strengths and age. 

The Performance

The highlight of the week will be the show on the final afternoon. Family and friends will be invited to come and see all the students have learned and watch the high energy performance in Uppingham Theatre.
