What will I learn?

This masters degree is presented in association with the Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse and enables you to create and showcase an original production. Our MA is an opportunity to develop or reinvigorate yourself as an actor and create original theatre productions. Working in teams, you learn how to take charge of your professional journey and become self-sustaining, by creating public performances adaptable to different venues and circumstances.

You experiment, innovate, and get to grips with contemporary approaches to extend your range of presentational skills. Through an immersive and ensemble-based approach you develop your technical skills with industry leading professionals. This paves the way for you to step out into the profession with the confidence and connections to be a success. Throughout the course you work as a year group to produce four performances before your final project. For this final project you form into smaller companies, or a single-person company, with a grant from us, to create and realise an original work, testing it out by finding audiences for this in external venues.
