Performing Arts (Musical Theatre) Level 3 at Seaton Burn College

Course description

Over the two years students will develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of the performing arts business. They will explore the variety of employment opportunities available as well as the training required for performing arts related jobs. They will also investigate different types of performing arts organisations and how to finance a production.

They will undertake performance workshops which will build on students’ ability, skills and understanding of devising original performances from stimuli or scripted work. Students will explore how to develop their ideas through research and practical exploration, shaping and rehearsing material and performing it for an audience.

Students will build on their skills in singing, dancing and acting and learn how to combine these abilities and skills in a musical theatre performance. They will gain an understanding of how to prepare, develop, rehearse and perform a role as part of a performing arts company presenting work to an audience. In preparation for their performances they will explore the requirements of a performance role and how to interpret text as well as gain understanding of musical theatre as an art form. Students will complete a self-reflective working log book which will detail their roles, responsibilities and tasks during rehearsal and development periods as well as performances.
