MA CREATIVE PRODUCING
Validated by University of East Anglia
One year (full-time)
Mountview’s MA in Creative Producing explores and provides experience and the skills needed to be a successful theatre producer.
Running since 2015, 100% of graduates have already gone on to work professionally in the UK and internationally, both on their own projects and with companies including Headlong, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Live Theatre in Newcastle, Park Theatre and Jermyn Street Theatre.
There is a maximum of 14 places available a year.
Theory and case study work over the first two terms are combined with practical experience and a series of guest lectures. You will create your own public work and produce a production as part of Mountview’s Directors/Producers Season in the final two terms.
All modules are compulsory. There is assessment throughout based on reports and presentations. Teaching days are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. In addition, students are expected to allocate two days per week to undertake their placements, production training and self-study.
The course is led by Pam Fraser Solomon, an award-winning producer/director with a background in theatre, radio and television production; theatre (The Sheffield Crucible, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Young Vic), TV (Eastenders, Holby City), BBC Radio 4 (drama and documentaries).
The course includes a programme of seminars featuring more than 40 leading independent producers/theatremakers.
