The Lyceum is delighted to be offering a new course this season as part of the short courses programme run by The University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Open Learning.
What does it take to be a civic theatre in 21st Century Scotland? Using a mixture of lectures, practical workshops and group discussions over the 10 week course, participants will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes and discover the workings of Scotland’s leading building-based producing theatre. Topics covered will include:
- Approaches to theatre and theatre production
- Programming and planning a theatre season
- Participation, engagement and communication with audiences
- Set and costume design
- Exclusive tours
During this learning experience, participants will be asked to consider the directors’ and designers’ approach to plays and review the impact the staging and creative decisions have on a production and the audience experience.
