Productions

At MGA we believe that it’s not good enough to simply give students the technical skills required for a professional career – students also need the opportunity to experience firsthand what it means to apply those skills in a professional environment.

You can catch our students in productions all through the year. With a strong focus on performance, our training programmes include concerts, gigs and fully-staged productions in both large-scale commercial theatres – such as the King’s Theatre and internationally-recognised concert venue the Usher Hall – and smaller studio spaces and site-specific venues. Whether it’s a 2,000-seater venue or an intimate room of 50, find all the information and booking links for forthcoming productions below…
