PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Build a foundation to further your theatre education.

Bring stories to life and gain hands on experience through a practicum in a professional UFV theatre production.

CAREER EXPECTATIONS

Because most jobs in the performing arts are short-term assignments, most actors, directors, and producers are self-employed. Hiring a reputable agent to represent you can help boost your success.

Mastering special skills such as dancing, singing, playing a musical instrument, acrobatics, juggling, horseback riding, sword fighting, archery, martial art, or stunt work can open additional employment opportunities.

Jobs also exist in related areas such as stage management, set or costume design, event promotion, lighting or sound management, scriptwriting, stunt coordination, fundraising, commercial video production, and more.

Many theatre grads also use the communication, teamwork, and management skills they have acquired to excel in other fields such as business, public relations, advertising, hospitality, arts administration, or education.

Description

The close nature of UFV Theatre has nurtured my growth as an artist and set up a path to continue my growth as a scholar and fight director. I came as an emerging actor and since then I have had roles like actor, assistant stage-manager, designer, operator, director and choreographer.
