The performance pathway offers an intensive blend of high-level vocational education and creative opportunities for students. The programme requires a related degree and/or related performance experience and marries together project-based learning experiences with focused skills classes in acting, voice, singing and dance.
This is a high-contact programme which includes individual singing lessons, rep sessions and project mentoring. As a Masters student, your practice will be underpinned by the RCS’ principles of Critical Artistry; ensuring that through practice-based research you will develop a deeper understanding of your craft, the industry and your place in the world as a creative artist.
You will work with our highly experienced programme staff, as well as a number of visiting industry practitioners and creatives. Our diverse range of performance projects will provide opportunities for you to explore and share your practice within a wide array of settings. These could include commercial concert, acting scene studies (contemporary and classical), company scenes project, new musical development, solo cabarets and commercial performance skills.
A full season of work featuring our Masters students is produced at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe each year.
