**News Flash** BA Musical Theatre (Professional Performance) and MA Musical Theatre Performance to start in October 2023

Associated Studios Performing Arts Academy is delighted to announce that Chichester University have validated a new 2-year accelerated Degree in Musical Theatre (Professional Performance) and re-validated their highly successful MA Musical Theatre Performance.   Courses start in October 2023.

Founded by Vocal Coach Leontine Hass back in 2006, Associated Studios it has steadily grown from a popular studio delivering masterclasses and workshops to professional Actors, Musical Theatre performers and Opera singers into a fully-fledged and highly regarded Drama school.

Based in London, Associated Studios has gained a reputation for training strong all-round performers with scores of alumni landing leading West End, theatre, TV and Film roles.  In addition to intense singing and acting classes, students are also put through their paces in streamed Dance classes, as well as weekly mock auditions, taught by West End professionals. It is a school closely connected with the industry, and core staff, as well as visiting coaches, all who work professionally in Theatre, TV and Film. In a climate where securing agent interest for graduates is challenging, the school has had 80% of students signed to agents by the time they finish term 2, and before their final public show.  Patrons include Sir Tim Rice, Jeremy Irons, Rory Bremnar, Danielle Tarento, Gloria Onitiri, Jeremy Herrin, Tim West, Rosalind Plowright OBE and Mike Dixon.

Associated Studios, a registered educational charity, is committed to giving access to top level training to talented young people with little financial means. Having been successfully validated by Chichester University, Associated Studios is now in a position to allow students to draw down government student loans, as well as maintenance loans.

Associated Studios patron Sir Tim Rice says: ”Associated Studios will prepare you for a competitive but thrilling business and inspire you as a performer. You will be working with brilliant practitioners who have an extraordinary wealth of knowledge.”

Principal and Vocal Coach Leontine Hass: “I am absolutely delighted to partner with Chichester University. The Chichester Conservatoire aligns very closely with our principles and objectives. Being able to train students from the ground up, whilst funded, is a dream come true.”

The Associated Studios Graduate Show Into The Woods, by Stephen Sondheim, is playing at The Playground Theatre, Latimer Road, W10 6QY from June 7th – 10th.
