Why study Theatre?
Studying theatre is one of the best ways to hone your artistic skills. It’s an incredibly enriching experience that develops a thirst for collaboration, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving. Too often you’ll find that theater teaches you such an ability to be a team player, that you graduate as an entirely different person. More humble, more appreciative of diversity, and most of all, you end up forming lifelong friendships and partnerships as you graduate.
Most people believe studying theatre will only lead to on-stage roles. However, a theatre is like a living orchestra, with thousands of people working together for the achievement of a single goal. From technical roles to working in wardrobe, several career paths can be taken after studying theater at university. While many of these roles never come on-screen, they’re the foundation behind which any successful theatre is built. Plus, there are excellent chances of growth with high salaries even if these roles don’t involve performing on stage or screen!
Undertaking a degree in theatre lets you unleash your creativity, and lets you understand yourself better. By understanding who you are, and the values you reflect, you can herald in social change through theatre. It’s also important to know that a theatre degree doesn’t just teach you performing arts. It’s a rigorous education program where students are expected to have a deep understanding of literature, and theatrical history. You’ll also be learning practical lessons in various niches such as stage management and designing.
What university degrees is Theatre useful for?
Students may take a bachelors in drama or theatre, or an abundance of other undergraduate and postgraduate degrees related to the performing arts.
Ultimately, the only thing that matters is what interests you the most. There are a plethora of options in the realm of theatrical studies. For example, if it’s performing arts that interest you the most, you are well poised to go on to get a degree in film. Film graduates learn essential components of film production including production, directing, and of course acting. You can also go towards a degree in public art and performance and become an actor in films, and commercials.
Alternatively, for those who are more inclined towards scriptwriting, which is an essential component of any piece, you can pursue screenwriting or creative writing. These degrees will equip you with the necessary skills and techniques to develop a compelling story that pulls an audience’s heartstrings. There’s a certain overlap between the production roles in theatre, therefore, it’s also worthwhile to consider getting a masters in theatre directing if you find you’re best suited for such roles. As such, you will find yourself working with actors and performers from around the world, producing on-stage masterpieces.
Conversely, you can also go forth and get a masters in World Theatres which gives a generalized coverage of the historical and philosophical bases of theatre.
What careers can studying Theatre lead to?
The world of Theatre can be a little challenging, but persistence is the name of the game. It will take you a little while to find your feet, or you may rise to instant glory. The important thing is to keep working and put your degree to good use!
Here are some career options for those who study theatre:
Moving Light Programmer
How does Theatre help with graphic design?
Studying both graphic design and theatre gives you a strong foundation in the fields of theatre art, design, and public performance skills. While theatre puts more emphasis on stage skills, and performances, it cannot be complete without graphic designers who input an artistic flair into the shows.
One might say that an interest in theatre arts also better prepares you for a career as a graphic designer. This can be because it provides you with practical skills relating to performance skills, movement, staging aesthetics etc. From a theatrical perspective, the world we see on-stage has been crafted very carefully by designers. It is a laborious career where designers spend hours deliberating on every tiny detail, special effects, lighting, and the impact of each change on the on-lookers. And as the curtain raises, they watch it all come to life on-stage.
Studying Theatre also helps with graphic designing by giving the students an eye for seeing images and understanding their effects on audiences. They can expect to learn a wide variety of skills such as photography, stagecraft (practical theatre), costume design or production management that they will carry into their professional life after graduation.
