Program description

BA (Hons) Theatre, Acting & Performance

Whether your ambitions are on stage or backstage, Theatre, Acting & Performance at Worcester is all about practical work. You learn theory through practice - in a wide range of venues, including our own drama studios, other local arts or theatre venues, unusual spaces such as nightclubs or disused churches, festivals, outdoor spaces and gardens. If you choose to, you can also have a work placement with a theatre, school or production company, or work within modules with youth or community groups, such as people with learning disabilities

As well as developing your acting skills, devising or writing your own performances and staging existing plays, you'll also cover the technical and practical side of the theatre experience, learning how to rig a light, for example. Furthermore, your wider study of the subject can prepare you for a wide range of careers alongside one in theatre (acting, directing, writing or technical theatre), such as teaching, or youth and community work.

Speak virtually at a live event on March 18th-20th!
