BA (Hons) Theatre and Performance Practice
Our Theatre and Performance degree allows you to explore a combination of core and optional modules so that you can pursue your individual interests and develop your talents. You’ll work as part of a group to create a wide variety of performances – from plays or originally devised work, to comedy shows and multimedia productions.
In the first year of your programme, you’ll learn the basic acting and theatre making skills and key forms of theatre practice, along with associated theories and debates. You’ll hone your skills in physical and vocal performance as well as critical and reflective writing.
As you progress through your studies, you’ll examine theatre and performance in a variety of optional modules, from radio production to theatre directing, from Shakespeare to new trends in theatre and performance. You’ll be given the support and guidance needed to work independently, manage your own time and collaborate creatively with your fellow students – all of which are vital skills for performers and transferable skills that are valued by employers.
On this course, you’ll learn through a mix of lectures, seminars, workshops and practical performance projects, with assessments including essays, presentations and publicly performed theatre projects, which are produced in our own theatre studio and 350-seat New Adelphi Theatre.
