Theatre Production:Design and Management (Intensive)

This course covers a wide range of theatre-related skills, including stage management, stage technology (lighting and sound) and design. It will be taught as a two-year intensive BA course. By studying intensively over two years, students will: • qualify and enter the profession a year earlier • save a considerable amount of money. All aspects of a three-year Theatre Production course will still be covered, with the same amount of time devoted to each. Partnership with Europe’s largest community theatre This course is embedded in a working theatre - not just a student theatre, but Europe's largest community theatre. We operate in close partnership with The Questors Theatre in Ealing; five minutes from the University's main site. The course combines theory and practical experience, which involves working in various capacities on shows at both The Questors, and in the London College of Music - one of the major faculties at the University. Facilities The Questors is a long-established, fully-equipped working theatre, with: • two performance spaces: the Dame Judi Dench Theatre and the Studio Theatre • a large set-building workshop • a paintshop • an extensive costume wardrobe • a sound-editing suite and many other facilities. The University itself has two large performance spaces, as well as other less formal spaces where performance is encouraged, and a modern suite of rehearsal and production rooms. The course is taught by industry professionals from the London College of Music. The College started life over a century ago as a music conservatoire. It retains this identity, but over recent years has developed many courses in modern performance-related technologies, including this one. Both London College of Music and The Questors Theatre enjoy a high reputation in the industry, which is enhanced by the highly-motivated and thoroughly-trained graduates from this course. Graduates from this course will have a wide range of career opportunities in the performing arts world open to them. This includes not only opportunities in buildings-based or touring theatre, but also careers in the film and TV branches of the industry. On successful completion of the course, you will have the choice of going on to MA courses in advanced specialisms. Relevant courses at the University include: • MA Events Management • MA Design.
