This redesigned course builds on the HNC, further developing your acting skills and giving you the opportunity to perform in two large scale productions at professional venues with designated Tech crews.

You’ll also devise your own pieces and perform them to audiences in professional environments.

Acting, voice and movement; production skills, research, rehearse and perform a role in different styles of play; different theatre styles, including historical context, social or political functions, staging costume and acting conventions; devising theatre, and how scripts are created; developing directing skills; professional development for actors and working in the industry.
