Certificate in Theatre Performance and Production (CTPP)

Overview

 

A theatre buff’s journey makes a compelling story. Offered to most students in SP, the Certificate in Theatre Performance and Production (CTPP) is a full-time Diploma-Plus Programme consisting of three modules on acting, behind-the-scenes production responsibilities and a final full-length theatre production.

Understanding drama — on- and offstage. Whether you have a passion for stage acting or you’re in your element behind-the-scenes, our CTPP course supplements and deepens your diploma interests, giving you valuable experience in drama, performance and production.

With the course, you will:
  • Develop your stage acting skills. Learn using real scripts and plays from a range of genres and historical eras. Discover how to use your voice, body and group dynamics in acting and creating character.
  • Sharpen your production skills. Learn what it takes to direct, produce and manage a play, from set, prop, costume, lighting and sound design to stage management, finance, marketing and publicity.
  • Gain valuable hands-on experience managing people, obstacles and even money from your involvement in the final project — a full-length theatre production that showcases your talent and learning.

Places are limited to first-year students with a GPA of 3.0 or above.

Course Fees. $100 per module for the first two modules (SC4100 Acting and SC4103 Production) and $150 for the third module (SC4104 Project); $350 in total for the entire certificate course.
