Musical theatre

Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical are communicated through the words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole.

Musical theatre

Musical Theatre is one of the fastest growing areas of interest within the dramatic arts. The Trinity Musical Theatre Syllabus recognises this and supports development in musical theatre training internationally. The syllabus integrates well with other programmes and examinations in performance.

Grade examinations in Musical Theatre are available for solo, pair, and group work. The three disciplines that are examined in these syllabuses are singing, acting, and movement but, as is the nature of musical theatre, candidates need to demonstrate their ability in these skills through integrative performance. At all levels the syllabus offers a wide choice for selection of performance material, which may include material from the candidate's own country or culture.

The Musical Theatre Syllabus is available for all ages and levels from Grade 1 to Grade 8. Opportunities for young learners under the age of seven are provided by the Young Performers' Certificate option.
