WHY A CAREER IN THEATRE AND PERFORMANCE IS MORE THAN JUST CENTRE STAGE
Theatre and performance is all about putting on a show. Whether through acting, comedy, dance, magic, circus acts or music, performing artists often use a combination of speech, gesture, music, dance, sound and spectacle to tell a story.
But there’s more to theatre and performance than the people on stage. The range of careers in the industry is incredibly broad. You could work as a production or stage manager, a lighting or audio technician, set designer, stage crew, director, producer or arts facilitator.
Your career could see you work in local government organisations, at youth arts companies, in schools or with independent production companies.
We offer appointments with our prospective student team to discuss career options, pathways, and course and entry requirements.
