Spring term 2024: “Quick-witted tragedy!”

This term will be focussed on things that make you laugh and cry. Students will explore how humour and pathos and switching between them can make your theatrical endeavours richer and more relatable to your audiences.

Students will also look into costume and set design as well as different roles within theatre making such as directing and stage management.

The end of the term will see a short performance for family and friends to showcase the creativity demonstrated over the past ten weeks.

Each group will have two current BOVTS second year students as their main tutors and there will be a Young Artists Manager to supervise the running of the day. The students will be from across our degree courses, from acting through to production arts, to ensure that the skills passed on are current and from the best possible source.

I've worked with visiting professionals this year that I never would have even dreamed of working with. It's been an amazing experience. Thomas Donnan, BA Professional Acting Student
