Students often receive tickets to West End productions and benefit from masterclasses and Q&A events from leading actors and theatre creatives. Students have recently had masterclasses with artists including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Dame Judi Dench, Noma Dumezweni, Kwame Kwei-Armah, Adrian Lester, Stephen Daldry and Glenda Jackson and production artists including Robert Jones, Neil Austin and Durham Marenghi.
Previous masterclasses have been led by Topher Campbell, Sir Michael Boyd, Rosalie Craig, Dame Twiggy Lawson, Mike Leigh and Graham Norton.
In addition to their formal study, students have recently represented Mountview by singing with Michael Ball and Alfie Boe at the O2 and on ITV, performing in the ITV Charity Gala at the London Palladium with Britian’s Got Talent winner Tokio Myers, as the Ensemble in West Side Story at the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, and as finalists at the Carlton Hobbs Awards, the Spotlight Prize, The Wanamaker Festival and as winners of the Lillian Baylis Award and Young Scottish Musical Theatre Performer of the Year.
Our Theatre Production Arts students have, among many other opportunities, worked with animatronics on Wicked, designed light installations on houseboats and worked backstage at Standon Calling Festival and on The Voice.
