Course description

Express your creativity! Come and join us to learn how to prepare everything for a big show! You will examine how the roles develop from rehearsal to performance and study the ways in which your skills can be transferred to working on multiple 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 performances. We will look at different shows and at what makes a successful performance, design costumes and accessories and much, much more... It will be fun!

The course will support adults on their journey to learn skills which help them progress either in work or life. Alongside the potential economic benefits, the course is intended to reduce loneliness and make people happier, healthier, more confident, capable and more resilient.
