BAMT's Full Time Musical Theatre Course is an intensive year of musical theatre training and networking with some of the best and most prominent people in the business and a year of fantastic theatre experiences that broadens all knowledge and understanding of the entertainment industry.


BAMT'S Full Time Musical Theatre Course is the only training program in Australia housed within a major performing arts venue (Hayward Street Studios), which is also the home of Harvest Rain, Australia's largest not-for-profit youth arts organisation and producer of musical theatre. Students are afforded the opportunity to train in the same venue where some of Australia's biggest musical theatre stars are rehearsing and performing, and the students regularly benefit from a range of formal and informal encounters with these luminaries. 


Being a part of the Full Time Musical Theatre Course is an inspiring and all-consuming experience. Throughout the year, students are given the opportunity to:

  • Attend classes led by industry professionals in acting, vocal skills, ensemble voice, music skills, dance performance and technique, industry prep, audition technique, wellness, music theatre, repertoire, industry engagement and fitness.

  • Refine their performance skills in a nurturing environment under professional guidance

  • Participate in a number of showings and theatre presentations

  • Work on audition pieces and audition technique

  • Prepare a CV and folio for entry into the industry

  • See major theatre productions and go behind the scenes with exclusive Q&A sessions

  • Access exclusive opportunities and discounts to attend a range of theatrical and touring events

  • Meet, network and work with a range of key industry professionals, agents and casting directors from across Australia and overseas​

Students are not only involved in daily training but are given the opportunity to work with some of Australia's most respected theatre technicians to present a full scale theatrical production at the culmination of the course.
