Programme overview

On this intensive practice-based masters course, you’ll work in close collaboration with fellow GSA undergraduate and postgraduate students.

You’ll begin the year with intensive seminars and workshops, which will introduce you to the stage management and technical disciplines, and begin your professional development planning.

You’ll then start working on our wide range of production projects, taking place in both our dedicated campus performance venues as well as external venues. You will have the opportunity to take on senior production-critical roles as deputy stage manager, stage manager or production manager on our public productions, all under the guidance of our experienced and industry-connected professional staff. You will also have the opportunity to complete an industry placement.

Your professional development planning will culminate in presenting your work at a London showcase event. To complete the year you will create a portfolio reflecting on your emergence as a professional practitioner.
