Students were given the opportunity to go behind the scenes at a Scarborough theatre as part of an open event for a new acting degree being launched in the town.
CU Scarborough, part of the Coventry University Group, and the Stephen Joseph Theatre (SJT) have held an open event for their new BA (Hons) Acting degree.
Students, including those from Scarborough Sixth Form and Franklin College, visited the theatre where they found out more about the three-year degreewhich will see those on the course study at CU Scarborough and attend regular acting masterclasses at the SJT.
They heard from Paul Elsam, the lead tutor and course director at CU Scarborough, about the brand new degree, which has already seen applications flooding in.
The students watched a technical rehearsal of Alice in Wonderland, which is currently showing at the theatre, where they were able to see the theatre’s artistic director Paul Robinson and production manager Denzil Hebditch in action.
