I Can Sing! Musical Theatre Programme

ICS! offers students the opportunity to experience the excitement of musical theatre and performance training in dance, singing and stagecraft with leading professional artists. With a repertoire ranging from Broadway hits to new operas, they gain new skills, confidence and firm friendships. 

Uniquely, due to the fact I Can Sing! is part of a larger Saturday Music Programme, students can also opt to take additional instrumental or singing lessons (subject to availability). The sessions are for students aged 5-16 years old who want to experience the excitement of musical theatre training and performance.

There is no audition process as we welcome students of all abilities – instead, we focus on reinforcing the ensemble performing tradition, drawing on repertoire that includes classic Broadway numbers alongside our own original commissions.

All sessions take place at Haggerston School, Weymouth Terrace, E2 8LS

Sessions run on Saturdays, following the academic year with 10 sessions per term

Bursary support for eligible young people to attend at the subsidised price of just £70 (normal price £210) is now available.
