The HubStudio is offering an incredible opportunity to work on musical theatre craft with a final industry showcase. This eight-week masterclass series coached by director, Shaun Rennie focuses on song interpretation and presentation. Sharpen your ability to get to the emotional core of a piece. Interpret the lyrics, and then personalise the storytelling.
Learn how to move people through song every time. Indulge in the essence of musical theatre.
You will finish this course with a stronger sense of how to prepare for musical theatre auditions. For those more experienced actors you’ll be challenged to dig deeper, and raise the stakes. Then take to the stage for a one off one night concert experience.
The course will involve a weekly masterclass. Each student will prepare one song every two weeks to perform for the masterclass culminating in a performance to industry professionals. This structure allows for experience and growth in:
- How to work with an accompanist in auditions and otherwise

- How to action a song for most bang for your buck
- Pushing your own technique further, and to work with a director who will challenge and encourage you to push past your comfort zone.
- An opportunity to be seen by representatives from the Hayes Theatre Company
Throughout the six weeks you will learn, through a series of classes and practical masterclasses:
- How to ground yourself for clear and authentic storytelling.
- How to choose songs that are appropriate for you, and the audition
- To decide “who am I singing to?”
- And “Why am I singing? /What do I want from them?”
