Third Year Musical Theatre students will start the season off with a series of Cabaret performances at Dirti Martini cabaret bar, followed by two Musical Theatre productions – ‘Into The Woods’ in May, and ‘9 to 5 The Musical’ in June, at Leith Theatre.

MGA Dance students will present ‘Impulse’ Festival at the Festival Theatre Studio in April, before presenting a Triple Bill of new choreography in May and ’21’ in June, a new piece reflecting on events of the 21st Century, both at Leith Theatre.

Our graduating class of Actors will perform the very first New Writing Festival at MGA in April, with new Scottish works performed at the Festival Theatre Studio. Their performances are ‘The Penelopiad’ by Margaret Atwood in May, Leith Theatre, and Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’ in June at the Rose Theatre.

All Spring and Summer season productions are available to book from the end of December so get you tickets early and come and enjoy some fabulous performances from our talented Class of 2020!
