West End Challenges

The way the challenges work is that we get a cast member from a current west end show to challenge the MTAS community to cover a song from their show. There will usually be one male and one female song but don’t feel that you can’t mix it up and cover the other. We recommend finding a good quality backing/karaoke track from youtube to perform over.

Completed entries MUST be submitted on the Musical Theatre Competition Page

For series 2 we are giving you 2 weeks for each challenge as feedback from series 1 was that is was too short turnaround time for each one. Good Luck!
