Theatre for Young Audiences MA/MFA

This programme is for those who are interested to make and perform theatre by, with and for young people. As one of the UK's leading drama schools, Rose Bruford College offers a unique opportunity to study and train in this increasingly popular and dynamic area of theatre practice.

Led by a team of specialist practitioners and academics you will be working with some of the leading figures in the UK and European sector. Students on the programme have had the opportunity to visit international festivals (including ASSITEJ Congress Copenhagen, Imaginate Festival Edinburgh, and Takeoff), work with leading companies and theatres (including Catherine Wheels, NIE, Oily Cart, Tall Stories, Unicorn Theatre, Action Transport Theatre, Polka Theatre, Half Moon Theatre, and Travelling Light), and with world class practitioners (including Tony Graham, Mark Storor, Alex Byrne, and David Wood). Working alongside our TYA creative partners, you will explore a range of theatrical techniques and theories that will enrich your ability to create theatre for audiences of all ages. The course includes work placements with leading organisations.
