Technical Theatre & Design

Young People’s Production Arts (YPPA) Summer Course

Love drama, but not acting? Interested in how theatre productions and live events are put together? Are you between 15 and 18 and have a passion for art and design, science and technology, craft, fashion and textiles?

An exciting new Summer School at Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama will give you five days of intensive workshops, exploring the exciting world of working backstage and the career pathways that are available.

This course has been specifically designed to give young production students an insight into day-to-day life in a drama school and introduce you to a range of theatre skills that will help you gain confidence and experience for the future.

No previous experience is required; if you are creative, curious and interested in how theatre productions and live events are put together, you are just who we are looking for!

We will be hosting workshops with industry professionals in costume, set, stage management, lighting, sound, and many more, working towards a sharing of your work to family and friends at the end of the week.

Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis, with a limit of 14 participants, and you must be available for all date and times.
