Course summary

An opportunity to develop or reinvigorate yourself as an actor and create work for touring. Working in teams, you learn how to take charge of your professional journey and become self-sustaining, by creating public performances adaptable to different venues and circumstances.
This course provides a thorough one-year professional experience of working in and developing work for touring and finding audiences. We want to help you take charge of your professional life by giving you the means and the confidence, by the end of the year, to create, find an audience and present a captivating show. Along the way, you work, as a year group, to produce two performances, before, possibly, becoming a smaller company. Your acting craft skills will increase, as will the thinking needed to create shows that attract audiences.

You experiment, innovate and get to grips with contemporary approaches, including digital possibilities to extend your range of presentational skills. We want to put you together with emerging directors and practitioners. Finally, you become part of a company to find out, if what you imagined might work, actually does.

Teaching is typically divided into technical and practical skills blocks, as well as intensive rehearsal periods. You are expected to acquire vital performance skills and knowledge in challenging acting approaches, taking on board 20th century techniques and contemporary company practices.

You gain an understanding of the construction and creation of performances, fully armed to apply this creatively in your professional rehearsal periods.

Rehearsals emulate industry scenarios, ensuring your practice and company work ethics are honed to industry standards, improving employability and interpersonal, collaborative proficiency.

Our graduates are likely to go on to form their own theatre companies. As well as being versatile performers, they will be equipped to take on other roles in the company, such as director, producer or script/screen writer, along with marketer and administrator. You are likely to see them on stage, in film and TV and hear them in radio plays, as well as on digital platforms and gaming.
