The BA (Hons) Acting degree, in partnership with the world-famous Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, aims to produce proactive professional actors.
The Stephen Joseph Theatre (SJT) is a professional producing theatre, was Britain’s first theatre in the round, and has premiered over 80 of the plays of acclaimed playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourn.
In this unique partnership, CU Scarborough students will work with SJT professionals at points throughout the programme - including mentoring, observation of professional rehearsals, and participation onstage in a professionally-directed piece for theatre.
Students completing the course will leave with a full suite of skills, experiences and contacts that will allow them to be fully industry-ready.
Within the first year, students learn in turn to move, speak, plan and then perform. At this stage the course aims to give a practical grounding in physical movement and in the use of an actor’s voice, both drawing upon the work of influential practitioner Rudolf Laban. Students will gain a foundational understanding of their personal methods and styles of communication, helping to locate them as an expressive human.
Students who complete year one are awarded a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Acting.
