Stage Management

Learn stage management, and specialist knowledge and skills in all aspects of theatre production. Through close working with students and practitioners of other theatre disciplines, students on this course develop an overall understanding of how each contributes to live performance, making them highly employable upon graduation. This course aims to produce stage managers who are able to adapt to any production setting ranging from West End theatre to large-scale outdoor events. Stage managers are a conduit between the director and the production team throughout the rehearsal process and the management of the performance itself, including the acquisition of furniture and props. Stage Managers must have excellent people, communication and negotiation skills to ensure they properly communicate developments through rehearsals and find solutions to production challenges. Students develop practical management skills through working in production teams on a number of realised productions, collaborating with other students and visiting professionals. This course leads to the qualification of BA (Hons) Theatre Practice.
