Half Moon’s hands-on, project-management style experience of all aspects of professional theatre at KS3/4 is a multi-disciplinary introduction to theatre making. Careers in Theatre gives participants the opportunity to work alongside theatre specialists culminating in creating a performance piece over just one day. Students are allocated a discipline for the day (acting, stage management, lighting design, set/costume design, composition/sound design) which then become student-led, culminating in role-playing a production meeting, running the technical and dress rehearsals, leading up to the final performance at day’s end. Later sessions offer the students guidance on how to pursue their career ambitions within the arts.
