Group Musical Theatre

Group Musical Theatre is an excellent examination for students at schools who already stage a school musical, as entire scenes can be reproduced for the exam. This gives learners the opportunity to gain a qualification that recognises the extra-curricular time they have put into school productions.

These exams also encourage young people to develop practical team-working skills. The ability to sing as a chorus and/or in harmony demands that everybody listen to every other person in the group and work with them to produce a performance that is in tune and in time.
