Theatre and Performance BA
Our Theatre and Performance BA (Hons) program will train you to be an industry professional with the ability to work across different areas of theatre and the performing arts. You’ll be immersed in a range of creative disciplines, including performing, directing, writing, dramaturgy and technical areas of theatre.
Our teaching team is composed of industry professionals and the program includes regular sessions with innovative guests who will share their expertise with you. This will allow you to make valuable contacts and learn from the experiences of some of the most exciting theatre-makers the city has to offer. You’ll also have many opportunities to showcase your work and create original performances.
Looking for a course that'll prepare you for life as a leader in theatre and the performing arts? Our Theatre and Performance BA (Hons) does just that. We emphasise learning by doing, which means you’ll not only gain comprehensive knowledge of theatre production from conception to performance, but also create and showcase your own performances.
We will work with you to create original performances from your very first year, with a number of opportunities to share your work. By Year 3, once you have gained enough knowledge, skills and confidence, you’ll create and perform an original piece that you have made at one of London’s arts institutions or theatres. This will involve a group project, where you write, direct, perform and even market your own show – equipping you with practical experience of creating theatre from all aspects.
Although the program includes significant training in acting, the goal is to provide you with knowledge of all major areas of the industry, from writing and directing to design and stage management. The performance-specific classes include subjects such as acting, voice, movement, ideas in theatre and much more. This holistic approach is designed to help you to find yourself as an artist.
