Our success rate
Rare acting and musical theatre graduates are achieving huge success on both stage and screen. In TV and film our students have appeared in productions for HBO, BBC, Netflix, Sky Atlantic and Fox amongst many others. They are also starring on the West End, at the National Theatre, in prestigious cruise liner shows and UK tours of world-class productions such as Othello, Heathers the Musical, Cilla the Musical, Spring Awakening, Les Miserables, Hair and Six the Musical. In the last year we have been thrilled that our Musical Theatre Graduate, Bethany McDonald, has been the first Rare Student to appear Off-Broadway, originating roles in two new musicals in New York.
Our recent dance graduates are touring the world and appearing in music videos with some of the biggest artists in music – Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Zara Larsson, Little Mix, Rita Ora, Robbie Williams and many others. They are lighting up performances on the Brit Awards, X Factor, MTV Music Awards, EMA’s, Children in Need and Strictly Come Dancing with their talent and professionalism and representing powerful brands including Nike, JD Sports and Capital Radio. Rare graduate Megan Bowers even smashed an Amazon Number 1 in 2020 with her first book about dance, ‘My Dance Journal’. Our students and graduates are all around the world doing what they do best and flying the Rare flag loud and proud!
