grad school in europe?
« on: Jul 23, 2009, 12:52 pm »
Can anyone recommend any good grad schools for stage management in Europe? I speak some German, but I'd prefer a school with a program taught in English.

I can't even get schools in Europe to talk to me. Let me know if you have any luck.

For Germany, as far as I know, you won't find.
German traditional theatre and opera do not know something like a stage manager.
They have "Inspizient" which could be compared to a Caller (but mostly sitting in the backstage area left or right).
Their major job is coordination between artists and technicians.
Other jobs usually done by a Stage Manager (blocking notes, all organizing of rehearsal process) are done by "Regieassistent" (both terms are male singular form).
And all the organisation/Personal handling work usually is done by some members of the "Intendant"'s staff.

There is no school in Germany where you can learn Stagemanagement as there is no equivalent Position in Germany

(writes Deuteronomy75 who worked some times as "Inspizient" and uses his books-based knowledge of the "american way" of Stagemanagement to provide organisation to local amateur theatre groups)

In the UK at any rate, 'grad schools' don't exist. There are universities, and colleges of further and/or higher education. All of them may teach undergraduate and/or postgraduate degree or diploma courses.

LAMDA and RADA for example, have 2-year foundation degree courses, and students on the courses range from 18-year-old school leavers, to 20-something graduates, to 30- or 40-somethings with no prior higher education experience. They're not really interested in what qualifications you already have (beyond a basic secondary school education), it's more can you cope with the course, are you passionate about the theatre, will you be a valued member of the course ?

Try the Confederation of Drama Schools http://sites.stocksphere.com/cds/default.asp or the Conservatoire of Dance and Drama http://www.cdd.ac.uk/ or UCAS http://www.ucas.ac.uk/ to search for courses.

Hope this helps
