CAO minimum entry points 2016: 280 first round

Programme description:

This undergraduate programme (level 8) deals with an area of drama and theatre education not currently catered for at third level in Ireland. Applied theatre is considered to be the study of drama and theatre across a range of practical applications and non-traditional settings, including but not defined by stage performance or the study of literary texts. Contemporary theatre signals that the programme will deal largely with current and emergent modes of theatrical production and reception.

This programme will seek to articulate the contemporary, varied and ever-changing roles of theatre and its practitioners in society. At its heart will be the concept of ensemble, which loosely defined, values and emphasises the importance of the practice of the collective.

Overview

The BFA major in musical theatre provides a comprehensive education in the practical and academic aspects of musical theatre. Each semester is based on the development of skills and competencies in the central areas of musical theatre performance: acting and voice, dance and singing. The degree offers a broad and holistic approach to the musical theatre, one that not only concentrates on performance from a participatory perspective (that is to say, on being a performer) but also prepares the student for the wide and exciting range of careers available in the performing arts industry. While musical theatre performance remains a central aspect of the programme, students are also prepared for the vast array of work that supports and produces performance, such as directing and staging, creating written material for performance, production, management, marketing and funding of the performing arts. The programme concentrates on live musical, theatrical performance (with elements of recording used for diagnostic and development purposes), but at the same time, a graduate is prepared for further study in the cognate specialisms in the performing arts, as well as for direct entry into a professional career. This is because the degree produces a wide spectrum of transferable skills such as effective presentational technique, expertise in using the voice and the body as communicative instruments, interpretational and compositional competency with written texts, management, marketing and fundraising abilities, and organizational skills. These are applicable not only in the context of the many career paths within performing arts but also in... [-]
