Each year we hire a major London venue to showcase the talent within each graduating year group. By this stage in the programmes casting is aimed to show each student's ability and talent in the best light. Short scenes are rehearsed especially for this event.
We invite industry professionals and encourage them to follow any students they might be interested in when they perform in the Ensemble and final Graduation Productions. After the performance the cast gets the opportunity to meet the professional audience.
New Writing Performance (BA students only)
The first of two of the BA students' full-length Graduation Productions presented to a public audience. These plays are written and developed especially for our students, building on work they have done earlier in the course.
These productions are fully staged and presented in our studio theatre.
For the penultimate block of performances we combine the final term students from both course and mount a series of one hour, open space Ensemble plays based on texts from many ages and cultures.
It is important for our graduates to be able to work quickly and accurately with a number of colleagues and to be seen working in this group environment. We hire professional directors and a central London venue for up to three performances a day.
Our Ensemble Productions are cast with graduates across our 3 full-time courses.
We open these shows up to all the industry as well as parents and friends who have stood by our students during their demanding studies.
Our full-length Graduation Productions are performed over three weeks in July in two Central London venues, with full technical support. Everyone is cast in a way which shows their talent and range. They are seen as the culmination of all the hard work the students have done. The productions have full marketing support and are the final showcase to the profession.
Our Graduation Productions are cast with graduates across our 3 full-time courses. We open these shows up to all the industry as well as parents and friends who have stood by our students during their demanding studies.
On 2018 Grad performance "Cherry Blossom" - "The quality of the work in this piece was very strong. It was also an excellent choice of work for graduating students to demonstrate their abilities. They were all heavily featured, it was modern, it allowed them to work with many art forms, and they all kept within the moment and never for one second lost the audience's attention" Denise Silvery CDMT
