Key Course Facts

Course Description

Why choose this course

Guildford School of Acting (GSA) has been providing highly regarded professional training in stage management for over 40 years and our graduates have gone on to work in all areas of the industry, both in the UK and around the world.

If you’re a graduate from a course other than specialist undergraduate technical theatre and believe your career path lies backstage, then our Stage and Production Management MA course is designed for you.

We’ll help you develop your existing knowledge and skills, enabling you to successfully launch a career in the theatre and entertainment industry.

What you will study

On our practice-based Stage and Production Management MA course, you’ll work closely with fellow GSA students to deliver stellar productions.

Through intensive seminars and workshops, you’ll be introduced to stage management and technical disciplines and begin your professional development planning.

You’ll then work on a wide variety of production projects across performance spaces within the University and at external venues. There will also be opportunities to take on senior production-critical roles as deputy stage manager, stage manager or production manager on our public productions, under the guidance of our experienced and industry-connected staff.

You’ll also have the chance to complete an industry placement and your professional development planning will culminate in presenting your work through a graduate digital showcase.
