Your Future

Theatre Arts Backstage Set Planning

The magic of the arts and entertainment industry relies on skilled theatre technicians. Make your mark in the world of amateur or professional theatre. Music events or festivals. Film or television.  No matter the path you choose after graduation, you will have the knowledge, experience and connections you need to succeed.    

Use your skills outside the industry

Studying theatre production gives you skills and knowledge that go far beyond the stage. You learn to work collaboratively with large groups and small, to accept feedback, to think critically about your ideas and to manage time. You learn to balance creativity and practicality. These skills are invaluable in the workplace, no matter where your career path takes you.
