Course Overview

After continued success with our eight week Musical Theatre program, both course director Shaun Rennie and studio director Oliver Wenn, wanted to develop a special Musical Theatre course that took actors to a much more comprehensive level, working with the best coaches in an integrated, intensive way. Designed as a short-term, high impact course (and ‘scene to song’ showcase finale), that gives each actor a thorough understanding of Musical Theatre training, this 40 session (2 session a week) program by The HubStudio is designed to give aspiring actors (ages 17+), a thorough opportunity to learn multi-disciplinary skills from some of the best working coaches in Australia under the overall course direction of Shaun Rennie, one of the most respected Musical Theatre practitioners in Sydney.

“Absolutely amazing! Shaun’s work is one of a kind!! It’s a course that any Musical Theatre performer should do once in their life!” Jaxon Graham-Wilson | Actor

The 20Wk Musical Theatre Ensemble is an intensive, integrated series that not only introduces each actor to the fundamentals of Musical Theatre technique, but also incorporates fundamental theatre acting training as well. Additionally over the 40 sessions the studio will be working along side you to create a working business plan, developing the fundamental skills of Actor Entrepreneurialism. It’s perfect for those actors looking to transition to Musical Theatre, or who are potentially seeking further full time study in the discipline, and for those who want to develop their skills in the craft via an integrated training program that allows for a great work/life balance.

This course has helped me on so many levels: I feel like I’m finally able to express all the potential that I hadn’t been able to access within myself yet. Every teacher has something unique to offer, it feels really special to be a part of. These classes have really helped me navigate 2021, I feel so supported and encouraged to shine bright.”

This course has been so exciting! I look forward to it every Tuesday and Sunday night. It’s been so interesting learning different ways of learning and preparing a song with Shaun, Phillip and Jen! I feel so much more prepared for auditions and performing on stage.
