MUSICAL THEATRE 

COMBINING MUSIC, SONGS, SPOKEN DIALOGUE AND DANCE

Musical Theatre is one of our biggest passions at Creative Performance Academy and we love them all:

WICKED, PHANTOM, MATILDA, OLIVER, LION KING......

You name it, we do it and we're constantly looking at new and fresh Musicals for us to learn and perform, as well as our old favourites!

MUSICALS SET OUT TO ENTERTAIN THROUGH A COMBINATION OF:

  • CATCHY MUSIC IN A POPULAR STYLE
  • SOLO SONGS, DUETS, CHORUSES AND ENSEMBLES DANCE SEQUENCES
  • SPOKEN DIALOGUE
  • STAGE SPECTACLES
  • MAGNIFICENT COSTUMES

LESSON FORMAT

EVERY LESSON IS COMPLETELY UNIQUE AT CREATIVE PERFORMANCE ACADEMY BUT HERE IS A BIT OF WHAT TO EXPECT:

WARM-UPS - At CPA we do a range of fun and engaging warm-ups to get your body moving and your voice reaching for those high notes!

SINGING - We spend time warming up our vocal chords correctly before practicing both group and solo pieces with the help of our qualified teachers.

DANCING - Learn new and interesting choreography that focusses on using movement as a way of expression and performance communication.

ACTING - Learn what it really takes to be a fantastic actor and how to reach an audience through vocal and facial expression. 

PREPARING FOR SHOWS - We love putting on performances at CPA and hold shows regularly. Main parts are rotated regularly.

PREPARING FOR EXAMS - It's so important to us at CPA that students both progress and achieve so we offer group and solo examinations at all levels. CPA is an approved centre for LAMDA. For more information please click here. 

PREPARING FOR COMPETITIONS - CPA takes part in both Solo and Group performances at two Competitive Music Festivals per year. 

Our CPA Musical Theatre Groups are friendly, welcoming and we aim to make every student feel right at home and part of the CPA family straight away.
