Northbrook MET

An exciting course for gifted students who wish to explore and develop their skills with a view to progressing to appropriate work in musical theatre or further study. The course programme involves the study and practice of both traditional and innovative areas of musical performance, including the study of Sondheim, Schwartz, Jason Robert Brown and other classic and contemporary innovators in the field of musical theatre. The course includes in-depth vocal training, a range of acting techniques and practitioners and many dance styles including jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary, pas de deux and commercial. Recent musicals have included “Sideshow”, “Bare” and “Rent” and, in addition to this, the students are given the opportunity to present their skills at an agents’ showcase in Brighton and London.

Kompact Theatre

Kompact Theatre formed in 2009 with the idea of producing compact contemporary musical theatre. The company focus is on using material by contemporary composers who create work for smaller casts. The result is innovative work that often challenges the barriers instilled by traditional musical theatre. We premiered our first show ‘Catch Me I’m Falling’ at the Northbrook Theatre. This production was so well received that we were asked to add more dates and in October 2009 Kompact returned for a further run. In May 2010 Kompact were lucky enough to perform at Concorde 2 in Brighton for our production of ‘To Look Beyond…‘ as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival. In 2010 the company decided to strip back their productions even further to become even more ‘KOMPACT’ and so presented an evening of alternative cabaret at the newly refurbished Brighton Ballrooms in November. With the success of this performance, we continue to perform our ‘Kompact Cabaret’ evenings at venues across Brighton and London. Kompact boasts an experienced cast and production team whose training includes East 15, ALRA, The London College of Music, Arts Ed, Royal Academy of Music, Mountview and STAC. Performance, production and directorial credits span stage and screen all across the UK, Europe and further afield in Japan, USA and Australia.

Our passion and commitment makes us who we are.

We are not trying to change the world through theatre, we are trying to spread a little Kompact love and we would love you to be a part of it.
