The degree encompasses stage management, lighting, sound, multimedia production, costume, props, stage mechanics, scenery installation and theatre design. You’ll also get the opportunity to specialise in a particular area of live production. From your first year you will explore stage management for different genres including dance, music, orchestras, circus, opera, musical theatre, and apply your knowledge on real QUT productions.
You’ll progress to learning about live productions and performance industries—production and tour management, festival site and logistics management, and technical direction—applying your skills in the technical, management and design area. In your final year you’ll work alongside industry professionals and learn to lead a team that will lay the foundations for transition into the profession.
