Musical Theatre
Musical Theatre led by The Star Project and Director Jo Payne

Musical Theatre is a wonderful way of bringing out the confidence in young people by exploring the 3 main disciplines, dance, singing and acting. Musical Theatre discovers children’s ability to express themselves in many different ways. Students explore different show themes and learn techniques such as improvisation, characterisation, script work, accents, voice projection, mime, comedy, physical theatre, dance genres, vocal technique, harmonies, ensemble singing and much more! They will also get to perform many times a year.

We are excited that our Musical Theatre program is run by The Star Project and led Director Jo Payne and her team.

Jo is a highly experienced Musical Theatre Performer with over 15 years experience working professionally in the industry and delivering workshops and programmes in Europe, the UK and Canada.

The Star Project was born in the UK in 2006 and has changed the lives of many young people.
