Production Arts: Costume

Edexcel Production Arts Costume BTEC (500/7380/1)
Subject Content

This unit gives learners opportunities to explore and develop theatre production skills, trying them out in a workshop setting reflecting some of the conditions, demands and time constraints of a professional environment.
Learners should gain awareness of, and experience in, the range of tasks that a production team undertakes during the performance process. Learners will be able to explore some of the different production roles and acquire creative, technical, administrative and organisational skills typical of these roles.

Learners should explore ideas from at least two different sources in response to two production scenarios. At least one of the sources must be a pre-existing work that involves interpretation, for example script, score, choreographic instructions.
