Production Arts

College students preparing for an event.

If your passion is to build and light a show, produce electrifying sound at a festival or cue musical theatre performers on the West End, Barnsley College has the perfect course!

The Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing and Production Arts will teach you how creative industries work and enable you to develop links with employers.

You will work with the latest equipment, gaining skills in lighting, sound and stage management and be assessed on live productions in our Electric Theatre.

On successful completion you can progress to degree level study or employment in careers such as Sound Engineer, Lighting Designer or Stage Manager.

College tutor Tom Flanagan said: “This is an exciting course for anyone who wants to learn about and work within the production industry. Previous students who have studied in this area have gone on to attend Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance and Backstage Academy.”
