Stage and Production Management
**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 have realised that your career path lies backstage, this course is for you. It will build on your existing knowledge and skills to increase your competence and confidence in stage and production management. After you graduate, you will be able to successfully launch a career in the theatre and entertainment industry. **What you will study** On this intensive practice-based masters course, you'll work in close collaboration with fellow GSA undergraduate and postgraduate students. You'll begin the year with intensive seminars and workshops, which will introduce you to the stage management and technical disciplines, and begin your professional development planning. You'll then start working on our wide range of production projects, taking place in both our dedicated campus performance venues as well as external venues. You will have the opportunity to take on senior production-critical roles as deputy stage manager, stage manager or production manager on our public productions, all under the guidance of our experienced and industry-connected professional staff. You will also have the opportunity to complete an industry placement. Your professional development planning will culminate in presenting your work at a London showcase event. To complete the year you will create a portfolio, including reflection on your emergence as a professional practitioner and an independent research project.
