Theatre Production Diploma
Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications
The theatre profession requires skilled theatre artisans and technicians. Theatre Production’s curriculum provides instruction and practical experience in lighting, audio, stagecraft, scenic painting, prop-making, costuming, projection, and management, ensuring that Theatre Production graduates are well-equipped for employment in the entertainment industry.
Instructors, who are members of the professional community, provide equal parts knowledge and experience. Instruction is complemented by hands-on learning in our new state-of-the-art performance spaces.
Theatre Production graduates are employed in professional theatre, film and television, as well as in the cruise line, conference and special event industries. Graduates have filled key positions at the Citadel Theatre, Winspear Centre, Edmonton Opera, Alberta Ballet, Edmonton International Fringe Festival, Alberta Theatre Projects, The Stratford Festival, Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Disney, and Rexall Place, to cite only a few examples.
Technology Integration for Creative learning (TICL)
Students in the Theatre Production program will need to purchase an Apple laptop and necessary software identified by the program. This initiative is designed to maximize student learning through the use of digital technology and provide students with the tools required to succeed in the industry.
