Acting students work towards the University of the Arts (UAL) Level 3 Diploma in Performing and Productions Arts in their first year of study; progressing onto their University of the Arts London (UAL) Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing and Production Arts in their second year. The Extended Diploma at Distinction level is allocated 168 UCAS points which is equivalent to 3 full A Levels at grade A*
In the Acting pathway students will gain a wide range of skills and experiences within a working theatre and by completing projects and assignments that are based on realistic workplace situations. Students will also be required to attend theory based classes which develop knowledge and understanding of the acting industry. Key tasks include: learning lines and rehearsing, researching or undertaking activities to help prepare for a part, discussing interpretation and delivery with other members of the company and the director, performing for a live audience, performing in a theatre or “on location”, audio as well as visual performances, rehearse/polish performances in your own time, managing the day to day running of the theatre, including front of house duties. The aim is to provide a broad range of skills and experiences to enable students to progress onto drama school, university or a career in the arts. Previous performance projects have included classical plays, contemporary plays, adaptation project, touring theatre project and storytelling. Festival core training elements include voice for the actor, movement for the actor, analysing text and interpretive skills, contextual awareness, devising, improvisation, communication to an audience, drama school and industry preparation.
