Theatre studies

The structure of this vocationally unique course is like no other in the UK. Student actors will work from the outset within a professional touring theatre company. You will gain knowledge and experience of not only performance skills, but also experience the development of a fully functioning professional theatre company. This will provide graduating students with the skills, experience and knowledge to be a truly entrepreneurial artist. We produce actors who are fully prepared for the existing and future demands of their profession, and who will have the inner resources to ultimately contribute to the development of their careers. This is a highly practical course designed for students that have real passion for performance and are willing to work at a professional level from the outset. The pace is fast and expectations of what can be achieved are high.

Modules

Year 1 modules include; Stagecraft and Approaches to Performance, Contemporary Theatre Practice, Creative and Devised Experimental Theatre, Practitioners and Advanced Acting Styles and Theatre Company Realisation. Year 2 modules include; Theatre Directing, Classical Acting Technique and Performance, Acting for Screen and Multi Media Performance, Professional Practice and Industry Engagement and Professional Practice and Performance Realisation All assessments will be based on vocational scenarios and practical projects. You will be assessed as a performer in a variety of circumstances but will also need to collate and record your progress through journals and research projects. There are no end exams on the course.
