About BA Stage and Production Management, BA (Hons) - at East 15 Acting School

FdA/BA Technical Theatre covers stage management, lighting, sound, set construction, prop making, scene painting, costume production, set and costume design, and is based on the requirements of the National Council for Drama Training.

It is a full-time vocational course that prepares students to become versatile professionals in a wide range of productions roles in theatre and related industries. With a strong emphasis on learning through practise, students become part of the creative team from the first term onwards and begin working with actors, musicians and professional directors and designers, to create productions for public performances. The course offers students the opportunity to try all aspects of theatre production in their first year before they commit to specialist areas.

The course is based in its own newly converted building that opened in 2008, containing workshops, an IT suite and seminar rooms. East 15’s close proximity to London is one of the great advantages of this course and students are exposed to the latest creative and technical developments in one of the world’s greatest theatre capitals.

Applicant information

FdA/BA Technical Theatre offers creative and practical problem solvers an opportunity to thrive! Students come to this course at East 15 with a range of backgrounds, interests and skills including performance, technical theatre, art, design, textiles and fashion. These reflect the many varied roles that make up a production team. Some understanding and experience of a performance environment is desirable but not essential.

First year

During the first year, students are introduced to all areas of theatre production including stage management, prop making, lighting, sound, set construction, costume making, and set and costume design before being asked to choose their second year options.

Second year

In the second year, students will begin to pursue specialist areas of study which includes stage management, lighting, sound, scenic arts and costume production. Learning is supported by work placements, practical projects and production work where students take on responsibility for individual roles on public performances. Previous work placements have included a wide range of employers such as the National Theatre, Covent Garden Opera House and Tricycle Theatre. Successful completion of this year leads to a Foundation degree.

Third year

In the optional third year, which leads to a BA Honours degree, students will specialise in one or two areas of production. Third years take on supervisory roles such as Stage Manager, Lighting Designer, Head Scenic Artist or Costume Supervisor and, where possible, students are allocated to projects that reflect their individual vocational interests and skills. During this year, each student will complete a professional placement, and also propose and execute a graduation project which reflects their own vocational interests.

After East 15

Employment prospects for technical theatre graduates are excellent. Students often gain employment through successful work placements. The creative industries, in general, are undergoing a period of growth and there is currently a shortfall in skilled technicians in a range of production areas.
