Some amazing training weeks coming up this year at MGA…

The MGA School of Part-Time Studies has got an amazing set of training courses and workshops lined up this year, offering some excellent opportunities to develop your Performing Arts skills, learn new ones from fabulous visiting tutors, and to discover what it’s like to train and work in the industry.

January kicked us off in fabulous style with the first of our Sunday Masterclass sessions for 2019. We were delighted to welcome back Broadway composer and MGA friend Jonathan Reid Gealt to Edinburgh to lead two sessions on Acting through Song. We are thrilled to announce that we will be welcoming cast members from the UK tour of Matilda The Musical for the April Sunday Masterclass and booking is now open! Sam Lathwood, Anu Ogunmefun, Steffan Lloyd Evans and Michelle Chantelle Hopewell will join us on Sunday 21st April leading Acting, Singing and Dance workshops across two streams (ages 8 to 12 and 13 to 17).
