Overview

Whether your ambitions are on stage or backstage, drama at Worcester is all about the productions. You learn theory through practice - in a wide range of venues, including our own drama studio, Tramps nightclub, Worcester Arts Workshop, local and regional pubs, and gardens. You'll also have a work placement with a theatre, school or production company.

As well as devising your own work and studying and staging existing plays, you'll also cover the technical and practical side of the theatre experience. How to rig a light, for example. Furthermore, your wider study of the subject can prepare you for a wide range of careers, such as theatre in education, directing, writing or teaching.

Key features

  • Friendly community, with 'getting to know you' activities in Welcome Week, student societies such as Loco (musical theatre) and Spotlight (cabaret), and 'Scratch Nights' where you can try out ideas in front of an encouraging audience.

  • Supportive tutors, who are also practitioners, many with ongoing performance companies.

  • Visiting theatre companies, who perform for students and take you to up to eight shows for free.

  • Links with community groups, museums and youth groups, giving you a choice of real-world settings for practising your craft.

  • Opportunity to transfer to MTheatre (our four-year integrated masters programme) at the end of your first year, with an even greater focus on professional practice.
