Performing Arts & Music

SUAC Onstage offers students specialist training to help them develop the techniques needed to succeed in the performing arts and music industries. Our courses, taught by elite industry staff, cover all aspects of theatre and music, from rehearsals and final performance to backstage set up.




About Us

Across the College’s Performing & Production Arts courses, students develop vocal, acting, dance and technical skills and techniques through a range of workshops, auditions and live performances each year. Our campus contains three performance spaces including two industry-standard theatres, allowing students to practice and showcase their work in a professional environment.

Meanwhile, the College’s Music programmes offer the optimal balance of practical performance and theory. Covering performance skills in instrumental and vocal technique, as well as music technology and the music industry, students benefit from dedicated rehearsal rooms and state-of-the-art recording studios.

Plus the College has now launched an exciting new initiative – stage school preparation courses. Specifically created for performing artists who are looking to progress to stage school, these programmes allow students to hone audition technique and professionalism whilst developing performance skills.
