It's not really made clear what the difference is between the Drama & Contemporary Performance course and the Acting course, so I want to make sure I'm auditioning for the correct one for me

The Drama & Contemporary Performance course is all about creating new theatre. So not just acting but directing, writing, creating.

The Acting course is actor training.

Hi there! I'm currently a first year at the Manchester School of Theatre on the BA Acting course - currently half-way through my second term here. We don't have any contact with the students on the Contemporary Performance course and we don't work with them. Their course focuses on creating performance for a modern audience, creative writing, directing, ect; whereas as the BA Acting course focuses a lot more on acting method and developing your skills purely as an actor.

Hope that helps.

Hi ! I was wondering if you know how many people are on the Drama and Contemporary Performer Course compared to the Acting course? Is it way more? Is it way less? Thanks
