"Studying musical theatre at Queensland Conservatorium gave me a complex technical understanding of the mechanics related to working in the industry. You receive an extraordinarily high level of professional support from staff who work at an international standard and most importantly understand the difficult progression of achieving technical freedom in singing, acting and dancing.
Were it not for my time spent under the guidance of tutors such as Megan Shorey or Melissa Agnew (among many, many others), I would have been completely unprepared for the wonderful and dizzying pace of 'The King and I'.
"I am currently living what I can only describe as a dream, in the company of a calibre of talent that I would otherwise never have had access to if I had not studied musical theatre with Queensland Conservatorium," Chris Fung, Bachelor of Music (Musical Theatre).
