Spring season approaches and MGA third years are busy

The MGA graduating year of full-time students are working hard as their courses come to an end and their final run of performances approach in May at the Church Hill Theatre in Edinburgh.

After another successful Musical Theatre showcase in London, with over 50 agents attending, MGA is now welcoming visiting friends from across the management and casting industry to Edinburgh, to help guide and inspire our third year Actors, Singers and Dancers and to help them prepare for their entry into the world of professional performers. And as the students start to think about their future life as performing artists, they are also hard at work rehearsing three fantastic productions to bring their training at MGA to a starry conclusion.

SPRING SEASON 2017: 15th to 20th May, 7.30pm at Church Hill Theatre 

Join us for three very special shows from our talented groups of Acting, Dance and Musical Theatre students in their final year performances before graduating.

We are also excited to be welcoming Director and Choreographer Carole Todd to work with our Musical Theatre students on MY FAVOURITE YEAR. Meanwhile the Dance students are working hard under the creative eyes of Head of Dance Senay Taormina and a talented team of choreographers on their original dance performance RITUAL.
