New MFA Programme Announced

The new Master in Fine Art Theatre Producing programme is the first of its kind on the island of Ireland - a dedicated one-year-long programme for emerging producing talent in theatre and related industries.

This MFA in Theatre Producing will equip students of exceptional talent with the skills necessary to pursue a career in professional theatre and related industries through the development of skills, professional practices and creative approaches to theatre producing. It encourages a self-reflexive approach to learning with a view to developing independent thinking and collaboratively-focused producers. On completion of this postgraduate degree, students will be equipped to start work as theatre producers. They will qualify and graduate from Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin.

The programme has been designed in the context of the theatre industry and the reality facing emerging theatre producers today. Producers are now most commonly working alone, as sole traders, without the support of a wider institutional framework. As a result, they need to be resilient, resourceful and confident in a broad range of practical skills across the entire production process. Students will acquire the specific skills required to work as professional producers whilst also considering the evolution of the art form itself, as well as developments in the global theatre industry.

Collaboration is a vital part of the success of our postgraduate programmes. Students on the course will also participate in classes with our other MFA students studying MFA in Theatre Directing, MFA in Stage Design (Lighting, Costume and Set) and MFA in Playwriting.
