Applications are open for the autumn and winter intake of theatre students at Hope Aria Academy in Manchester following an inaugural 12-week programme.

It’s a part-time drama course in Manchester, which focuses on acting, singing and dancing.

Students can either take classes in all three or choose single modules in one specific area.

The academy was founded by Katy Lipson, Joseph Houston and William Whelton and came from the need for more opportunities for Northern-based performers to specialise in musical theatre.
