Production Arts (Stage) – Foundation Degree

Stage Management, Lighting & Electrics, Sound & Scenic Crafts.

The FdA course is an intensive two-year programme for students who already have some knowledge of Stage Management/technical theatre or students that have already gained a degree.

The course provides students with advanced level skills and knowledge in Stage Management and technical theatre so that they can be employed directly on completion of the course in professional theatre companies and other related industries.

In the first two terms the course provides a grounding in all core production skills needed to work as a professional.

During this first year they learn theoretical and practical aspects of stage management, lighting, sound, prop-making and scenic construction.

They also learn a range of common skills: communication, problem solving, time management and leadership.

In the following four terms, the students are treated as professionals, with support and mentoring from tutors.

They work in Stage Management, prop-making, construction and technical teams on public productions and work closely with other production departments.

Applications to this course are through UCAS. For more information about this course and how to apply, visit the school course page.
