The Master of Fine Arts (Music Theatre) offers practice-led research into music theatre, a term widely interpreted as forms of theatre in which music is an essential element in the making or the performance of the work, and also as musical theatre, in its various incarnations from its early formations in the nineteenth century to current commercial productions, not-for-profit developments and experimental shows. Creative research projects may investigate areas of practice, performance, writing, composition or training, with the imperative to develop scholarly engagement which leads to the dissemination and contribution of new knowledge and understanding in the field.
