Term 6: Immersive site production

Duration: 6 weeks

Dates: 5 June – 15 July

The final term will consist of a full scale, immersive musical production, in a site-specific location. Because immersive theatre is becoming a far more popular art form. So, the production will provide an experience that very few performers get to experience while training.
