Technical Theatre is for students who want to pursue a career backstage. We offer a combined focus that not only trains you to work at a professional level of competence, but also encourages you to develop your own personal design aesthetic. The course is based on campus at St Mary’s, but draws heavily on placement opportunities and connections with a range of theatres and performance venues across London, the theatre capital of the world. The programme runs over two years with each year divided into trimesters. The first two of these run parallel with the University’s main undergraduate calendar, but technical theatre students supplement this with an additional eight weeks of tuition which takes them through until June.
