Post-graduate programme

Theatre Works

This is a production programme only available to graduates of the full-time School. Under the direction of Ron East, each ensemble will develop and present a complete show for the public. There are places for three ensembles per year, the first starts in August and showcases in December, the second starts in September and showcases in March, and the third starts in November and showcases in June.

Development and rehearsal take place evenings and weekends, so that participants can also implement the technical and marketing elements of their project, and support themselves. Guidance is provided in all aspects of the production, and participants have control of their own budget. Acceptance into the programme is at the discretion of the Director.
