Tell me more, tell me more...

Macclesfield Musical Theatre Troupe (MMTT) will offer quality multi-discipline performing arts training from qualified, highly-skilled professionals. We will be based at The Fallibroome Academy, who are well-known for their outstanding performing arts department and facilities. MMTT is made up of five separate troupes - Presets (3-5), Beginners (5-8), Risers (8-12), Swings (12-15) and Principals (15-21). Students will take part in a weekly dance session and a weekly musical theatre session (acting, singing and movement combined) for 10 weeks per term. MMTT plans to provide students with performance opportunities and the chance to take part in a group musical theatre exam.
