Description:Applied Theatre helps you adapt practical theatre skills to achieve your goals in non-traditional performance contexts and styles. You could work as an animator at a living history site, use theatre to raise awareness around social issues, create experiences that build or celebrate community, engage youth in learning opportunities, and help at-risk populations develop skills and support networks. At CBU, you can study traditional theatre skills such as acting, directing and stage management, alongside the versatile techniques of applied theatre, including improvisation and devising. Enhance your studies with work placements and courses that support applied theatre careers, like entrepreneurship, marketing, musicology or cultural policy. By studying applied theatre, you can learn how to recognize the needs of your communities and use theatre to meet those needs, bringing real change to the world in which you live.
