If you’re interested in working behind the scenes in the theatre and entertainment industries, our Foundation Degree in Stage Management and Technical Theatre is the course for you.
The programme will introduce and develop the theory, skills and techniques required for entry into the theatre industry. You will study vocational modules in sound, lighting, stage and production management in addition to developing your personal skills. Throughout the academic year you will further develop these skills by working on productions in our on-campus theatre and studio theatre as well as venues around the city.
The Performance Academy is one of the most comprehensive training environments in the UK. Our main performance space, the Peter Sarah Theatre, is a fully equipped and adaptable space with a full height fly tower, counterweight flying system and tension wire grid. In all of our venues you will work and train on industry standard equipment.
