UCAS CODE W410 Our BA (Hons) Acting For Stage & Screen programme here at The Northern School of Art has been designed by working professionals to allow students to develop the skills required for performing on stage and screen. This joint approach gives experience of both mediums and offers the student a distinct advantage in the job market or to explore further the craft of acting. Students will develop core acting skills in voice, characterisation and physicality, which will be utilised in performances for stage and screen as well as working on contemporary and innovative performance practices.
Alongside this skill development, students will work collaboratively with other degrees on brand new material created by the film and theatre scriptwriters to enrich your experience on the programme and give you a large body of work; finishing with a final show-reel and extensive CV with which to enter the marketplace with. Students are treated as ‘actors in training’, with professional standards expected on all projects. These skills will be developed by working alongside guest lecturers and industry professionals from theatre and film. We also have close working relationships with regional venues, where you will get involved with productions and live projects – these include Darlington Hippodrome, the Theatre Hullaballoon and the National Centre for Children’s Theatre. The Northern School of Art is soon to open; The Bus Sheds – a commercial sound stage facility next door to our teaching facilities, which will be one of the largest such facilities in the UK. The programme has strong industry links with regional theatre and film companies, which help to shape the curriculum and offer an important network of contacts which can lead to future employment opportunities.
