About the Production Arts Course

Our production arts course for ages 14–18, is perfect for those who enjoy providing creative solutions, working as a team and bringing ideas to life. 
The course will explore the many different creative positions within production arts and the process involved within each of these —from brainstorming ideas to thematic research, mood-boarding, visualising and pitching the concept. 

Students will explore lighting, sound, stage management and projection with a view to applying these skills together with drama and music students to create innovative performances. These will be staged at the centre or other arts venues. Visits from Guildhall School production arts students and tutors will give students the opportunity to further develop their skills and ask any questions they might have. 

Our production arts course is proud to partner with Backstage Niche-  a community of freelancers from diverse cultural backgrounds who work in technical and backstage theatre. Their aim is to encourage the involvement of young people into these production art roles as well as supporting professionals currently working in the industry who are from the Global majority. This includes mentorships, panel talks, workshops and a database where companies and theatre establishments can build their creative teams that reflect the society we live in. 
Whether you simply want to spend a couple of hours immersing yourself in a purely creative environment, while learning new skills and some clever show-business hacks, or are considering a backstage career in the creative industries, you can be sure to unleash your creativity and have lots of fun, whilst learning from top practitioners and industry professionals.
