Overview

The Drama and Theatre Studies course is taught in excellent purpose built facilities which include rehearsal rooms and a fully functional black box theatre. 

The course offers a professional theatre approach with preparation for students considering studying acting/drama at both university and major acting schools. It is also an excellent grounding for further study which can lead to careers in law, social work, psychology and teaching alongside confidence building. 

The main focuses of the course is the development and interpretation of theatre and live performance. The coursework is a mixture of analysis and practical performance. 

Students will have the benefit of working with industry trained staff and practitioners within the department that have a wide range of skills. Currently we have LAMDA, Shakespeare, and technical theatre practitioners. The department staff also has many 
years of experience readying students for auditions.

Visiting theatre groups, theatre trips, enrichment activities ranging from LAMDA to drama improvisation and the college production, a joint venture between the Drama and Theatre Studies and the Musical Theatre departments, ensure that any 
student studying at Long Road has the opportunity to develop their skills beyond the study timetable.
