This Masters level course provides students with advanced level skills and knowledge in theatre production management such that they can be employed directly on completion of the course as freelancers in the theatre.
The course is integrated with the School’s other courses during productions as well as within the professional environment, as some performances take place in local professional theatres.
The learning is immersive and singular in its focus on high level professional employability as a main learning outcome.
The training for this senior management position in theatre develops a student’s skills to an advanced level in leadership, problem-solving and project management.
Students learn to take a high level of responsibility in a creative industry and gain experience in a professional context.
The course begins with a series of case studies and practical classes in the roles, technologies, financial control, scheduling, planning and health and safety of theatre production. Students will then work as assistant, progressing to production manager, on public productions.
Applications to this course are through UCAS. For more information about this course and how to apply, visit the school website.
