Overview

At Surrey we focus on developing your combined talents as an actor and a musician with a programme that sits alongside our internationally recognised performance programmes in Acting and Musical Theatre.

For many years these programmes have been at the forefront of delivering top-quality actors and performers to the industry. As with all Guildford School of Acting (GSA) degrees, the focus is on developing the versatility to work professionally, in this case as an actor or actor musician, in a wider range of theatrical contexts.

Our programme will help you become a highly disciplined individual and versatile performer and introduce you to musicianship in performance, acting technique, voice, ballet, tap, jazz and singing.

On graduation you will be equipped to work both as an actor and an actor musician across a range of performance contexts, taking advantage of the growing appetite for versatile performers across the industry.

Programme structure

On our Actor Musician programme the first year of study is split over two semesters with the focus on core skills in acting, dance, singing and music.

In the second year students work on texts as diverse as Shakespeare, Lloyd Webber, Sondheim, Chekhov and Ibsen, with musicianship skills woven in.

The third year of study is based around three core performance projects: play, a musical and a devised piece, alongside a showcase for industry performed in a London venue.

Career opportunities

Our graduates have an unrivalled employment record in West End shows and national tours.
