BA (Hons) Theatre Practice: Stage Management
This course aims to produce stage managers who are able to adapt to any production setting ranging from West End theatre to large-scale outdoor events. Stage managers are a conduit between the director and the production team throughout the rehearsal process and the management of the performance itself, including the acquisition of furniture and props.
Stage Managers must have excellent people, communication and negotiation skills to ensure they properly communicate developments through rehearsals and find solutions to production challenges. Students develop practical management skills through working in production teams on a number of realised productions, collaborating with other students and visiting professionals.
