Stage and Production Management BA (Hons)

Stage and Production Management BA (Hons) at Backstage Academy is dedicated to delivering the next generation of stage and production managers for the live events sector, in areas as diverse as theatre, live music, concert touring, corporate and sporting events.

Beginning with an in–depth study of traditional theatre based stage management techniques, you will then learn how to apply this knowledge across the breadth of live events. You will examine how the roles of stage and production managers develop from rehearsal to performance and tour, and study the ways in which your skills can be transferred to working on multiple events both in the UK and internationally.

The programme has been designed to give you an edge to succeed in a busy market place and is the first of its kind to be dedicated to the stage and production management of large scale shows, concert tours, outdoor events, conferences, award ceremonies and festivals.
