A Week in the Life of a Theatre Student in Prod Week!

Hi there, I’m Sophie, a third-year student on the Theatre: Writing Directing and Performance course here at York! A question I asked of all the universities I considered was how they balance practical work and theory. One of the things I love the most about the structure of the course here at York is the way it builds and to become more independent and allow you more creative freedom as you progress and begin to specialise in your preferred areas. The Pre-1900s module in third is one of the most anticipated parts of the course and I’m super lucky to have opportunity to share with you my ‘week in the life’ post about my experience in production week as a co-director!

My experience of the Pre-1900 Production Project

My name is Stevie and I am a Third year Theatre student at the University of York. It is an absolute joy to write about this University and my course, in addition to what I believe makes it so unique in comparison to other institutions. In my blog I am going to be discussing a recent module I completed in the first term of Third year and the experiences I personally had with it. ‘Pre-1900s’ is a core module of your Third year within the Theatre degree, and is an incredibly exciting challenge to undertake working with your peers to create some truly impressive theatre. A key part of University, for me, is falling in love with your degree and reminding yourself why you chose to pursue the subject you did. With the Pre-1900s module it was absolutely a perfect reminder of why I particularly love Theatre and immersing myself in it on a daily basis.
