Accelerate Training Programme

The Accelerate Training Programme is a one-year, non-accredited course designed to bridge the gap between local training and a professional establishment.  Based in the Midlands, this course is offered at a competitive rate and allows students the flexibility to work whilst living at home. Students are comprehensively trained across the three art forms – singing, acting & dancing; pushing their skillsets to gain their maximum potential. This programme is tailor-made to each individual to help them achieve their ultimate goal of securing a place at drama school/musical theatre college. 

The course runs from September through to May.

Students will train three days a week, Tuesday – Thursday from 09:30-16:30.

The training is based at Kristian Thomas Company Studios, Unit 13b, Shardlow Industrial Estate, British Waterways Yard, DE72 2HL – just off the M1 at Junction 24a.

Fees are £2,385 for the year. Financing options are available for the course, offering you your own individual payment plan.

Programme Tutors are all highly trained and practiced in their particular field, ensuring delivery of top quality tuition. These tutors have followed different pathways to get to where that are currently and as a faculty, offer extensive & varied knowledge and expertise to the cohort. We also have a range of Associate Artists, alumni from a number of Musical Theatre Colleges & Drama Schools to offer supplementary expertise throughout the course.

Students will cover every aspect needed for forthcoming auditions, from Technical Jazz & Ballet to Monologues, Acting Through Song, Singing Repertoire and more – please see more detail under section ‘Course Content’.

Under the Kristian Thomas Company umbrella, students will have access to a range of supplementary training, classes and performance opportunities. Additionally, they will take part in a Graduate Showcase at the end of their year. Students will be showcased in a range of numbers, all produced by a range of working professionals and creatives.
