Production news! Spring shows…

Two exciting productions coming up for the spring… ZANNA DON’T and BROADWAY BOUND.

ZANNA DON’T is a fabulous musical ‘fairy tale’ set in heterophobic Heartsville High and stars the MGA third-year HND performing arts students. Find out more about the show and how to book on our productions page. We are excited to be performing at the Festival Theatre Studio for this one on March 12th, 13th and 14th at 7.30pm, so you haven’t got much time left to book your tickets!

Then all focus goes to BROADWAY BOUND, the MGA annual dance show on Thursday 2nd of April. For one night only, the entire forces of the full-time performing arts school come together to present a spectacular evening of dance and music celebrating a whole range of Broadway shows.


After last year’s amazing success, the show will again feature live vocalists to provide a thrilling soundtrack for our wonderful dancers. We are delighted to be back in the King’s Theatre after The Addams Family last summer – some and join us for a magical Easter evening! More info on the dance show and and details for booking can be found on the productions page.

As ever, all the latest MGA news and production updates can be found on Facebook, and check the productions page for all forthcoming MGA student dance and musical theatre performances. If you’re feeling inspired to come and join us for next year’s season, there’s still time to audition for a full-time performing arts course (8th March, 3rd May, 28th June in Edinburgh) so why not apply now?
