What you will learn

Course Overview

The programme will also afford practical time for the student director to steadily hone the basic rudiments of directing with a series of studies, which will also enrich the performer’s experience of the subject with regular showings during the term.

The student director will work closely with directors and technical teams on Public Performances. They will also be encouraged to develop their own creative work during the course of the degree.

The possibilities of learning about the technical and stage management aspects of productions, marketing and booking tours as well as creating educational workshops will be deeply useful to prepare the student director for the industry and make them practically aware of all the essential roles that goes to producing a piece of professional theatre.
