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.
