As an organisation we have a philanthropic and creative approach which includes some wonderful outreach projects. Associated Studios have gone into Feltham Young Offenders prison to deliver vocal workshops to the inmates, we have regularly participated in ‘Crisis for Christmas’, delivering Drama workshops to the homeless, including on Christmas day, we have sung on the wards of hospitals and we have given out bursaries to many extremely talented performers who have since featured as Leads in shows such as Lion King, Motown, Come from Away, Thriller, Hairspray, Kinky Boots and more.
We are a family and a network for life. Many alumni return and chat to the current students or even teach them specific show material, after a few years out in the industry. Our alumni are frequently in touch and come back to participate in masterclasses or take part-time courses to sharpen their game if they feel they need to re-focus.
Our full-time students take part in a full-scale production. The entire third term of the Intensive Diploma and MA Musical Theatre is a production term. We rehearse as a production company would and the show is performed in a professional London theatre.
We are proud that our Industry showcases attract many agents and casting directors, including some of the most highly respected and established agents in London, who turn up to support and offer representation to our students.
We enjoy consistent and hands-on support from many industry luminaries including Performers, Agents and Casting Directors, as well as our patrons Tim Rice, Rory Bremner, Jeremy Irons, Tim West, Danielle Tarento, Scott Alan, Rosalinde Plowright OBE, and Alastair Lindsey-Renton.
