Students of the Advanced Diploma in Musical Theatre, have the opportunity to perform a showcase to an invited audience of Australian agents, casting directors and industry members, thereby facilitating auditions and work. On completion of their training in Australia, advanced students are invited to take a fourth term at Associated Studios London, culminating in a West End industry showcase.
