Graduate Success

In 2020, our first ever Graduates left ICTheatre to join the ‘real world’, and we have watched as they’ve flourished into their careers. Some have launched theatre companies, or founded brands and businesses, while others have landed their first roles in theatre, commercials and feature films.

Graduating into a pandemic was not expected for our 2020/2021 training professionals. Instead of seeing it as a barrier, ICTheatre students have taken what was learnt about entrepreneurship throughout their training and pushed forwards with their careers, despite the challenging times we faced.

ICTheatre focuses on training each student as an individual, meaning they can strive towards their career goals, whatever they may be. While the degree is streamed into three areas of the performing arts – Contemporary Musical Theatre, Acting for the 21st Century and Hip Hop Artistry – our students have the opportunity to explore a wide range of career paths. This includes stand up comedy, stage combat and social media content creation. These opportunities, partnered with ICTheatre’s focus on creating business-minded individuals, mean that our Graduates have been able to step out into the industry and find their way forwards – no matter the environment or barriers placed before them.
