Design for the Stage

Studying Design for the Stage prepares students to work creatively and professionally as set and costume designers. They will learn to work speculatively and through realised productions in a range of different performance contexts and genres, gaining a firm grounding in theory. Design for the Stage students learn through collaboration with those studying on Central’s design, production and acting courses, gaining a deep insight into other practices. They also work closely with the craftspeople and constructors who will realise their designs, and the stage management and technical production teams who will bring their work to the moment of performance. Skills including model making, technical drawing using AutoCAD and SketchUp, costume drawing and storyboarding using Photoshop, and the use of projected media will be developed, and there will be opportunities to put these skills into practice on realised projects in Central’s professionally equipped performance spaces. This course leads to the qualification of BA (Hons) Theatre Practice.
