Production Arts at Guildhall

State-of-the-art facilities

Guildhall's technical and performance facilities are among the best in the world. The teaching is practical and production-based; students work on public productions and live events with professional directors, designers and conductors, participating in the creation of acclaimed dramas, operas and large-scale open-air video events.

The School has five professional-standard performance venues with state of the art equipment. These allow our programmes to keep in line with current practice and new technology. Students use the School’s on-site theatres, rehearsal rooms, workshops and Costume Department to collaborate on major productions and a range of smaller projects and events.

Preparing you for industry

Our degree programmes have been designed to involve you completely in the complex art of theatre and live performance. They bring together writers, designers, actors, musicians, composers, choreographers and technicians to achieve fully professional production values.

Your training will provide you with a firm practical knowledge of theatre crafts and managerial skills and prepare you for professional life in the theatre and live performance industry.

Collaborative practice

In Production Arts, as in our other departments, we break down traditional boundaries and challenge convention, giving you the chance to work with students from other art forms.

If you join us as an undergraduate, you will work with students on the Acting and Music programmes during the first-year workshop project. And each year, our facilities are handed over to students for an entire day of informal showcases as part of the annual Guildhall Festival. On this day, students from all disciplines come together to display their creative talents.
