LASALLE-SIA to launch scholarship for acting & musical theatre degrees

Continued from FrontPage of Article

Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Acting Programme

The Acting Programme is a highly selective performance-based course of study, which prepares extremely committed and talented students for professional careers as actors in theatre, film and television. The programme ensures students graduate as informed, creative actors with resources to work across cultural boundaries.

It also provides students with a broad range of practice in different Western acting and performance styles and techniques while being informed by non-Western and Asian theatre practices. A range of work from the epic and the classic to the avant-garde and contemporary will refine students¨ skills in class, rehearsal and production situations - with the final year operating as a Performance Company.

The programme provides students with a comprehensive set of acting, voice, improvisation, movement, theatre history and dramatic literature classes as well as workshops and masterclasses led by acting and theatre professionals with international reputations and experience. Graduating students will be taught career and portfolio management to prepare them for auditions worldwide.

Both the Musical Theatre and Acting programmes are offered at the Faculty of Performing Arts & Integrated Studies. Other performing arts degrees available at the Faculty include Dance, Classical Music, Jazz, Music Technology, Popular Music, Theatre Arts, Technical Theatre Arts and World Music.
