    VCA Theatre provides immersive and rigorous, conservatoire-style preparation for the 21st century performer and theatre maker. The course celebrates the full creative potential of the performer as a creative, collaborative artist and trains theatre artists to become both accomplished performers and highly skilled devisors of their own work.

    Small class sizes

    With small class sizes to support intensive project-based learning in theatrical contexts, you will explore current cultural and methodological practices.

    Collaborative practice

    Collaborative practice, as an important element of contemporary theatre, is integral to our training. As a Theatre student, you will collaborate throughout the course with VCA students from other disciplines, including Acting, Writing, Directing, Production, and Film & Television.
