In collaboration with the Mercury Theatre, Colchester, the degrees in Technical Theatre have been revised and revamped to offer our students practical hands-on learning in a professional venue from their first year.Throughout your course you will be introduced a wide range of technical and management skills with the emphasis on employability and expanding your knowledge across Technical Theatre.
The core modules currently include: lighting, sound, stage management, scenic construction, work placements and working on productions, as we feel these provide our students with a solid base to grow and develop from.In past years we have presented a range of productions and events including Bat Boy, Addams Family, Big Fish, Avenue Q, Spelling Bee, Twelfth Night, Oedipus Rex, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Seagull, The Devil in Drag, Julius Caesar, Cabaret, Seussical, Godspell, Pippin, American Idiot, The Wonderful World of Dissocia, Ordinary Days, And the World Goes ‘Round, Secrets Every Smart Traveller Should Know as well as rock music festivals and numerous other music, dance and dramatic arts performances, all of which have been supported by our Technical Theatre students at venues across Essex.
The degrees are validated by the University of Essex who are recognised across the world as a provider of high quality degrees, one of which will be yours. As a member of Colchester Institute you will have access to not only the main campus but the University of Essex campus and facilities, providing you the best of both worlds.
After your studies there are a range of career options open for you to explore. Our recent graduates have been employed by West End theatres including Billy Elliot and Beautiful, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Sadler's Wells, London Speaker Hire, Newcastle Royal Theatre, French Woods, Pontins, Ministry of Sound, Mercury Theatre, and New Wolsey Theatre to name a few with others pursuing freelance work across the world.
