The MGA team, in partnership with professional international producing company Beyond Broadway Productions Ltd, are responsible for all our commercial student productions. We know that it’s not good enough just to give students the technical skills required for a professional career, we also need to give them the chance to experience first hand what it means to be a professional before they leave us.

You can catch our students in productions all through the year. With a strong focus on performance, our training programmes include concerts, gigs and fully-staged productions in both large-scale commercial theatres such as the King’s Theatre, seating 1,750 people, and internationally-recognised concert venue the Usher Hall, seating well over 2,000 people – and at the other end of the spectrum, site-specific and promenade-style venues for audiences as small as 25 people.
