LIVE THEATRE LAUNCH NEW ONLINE PLAYWRIGHT COURSE!
The Live Theatre’s hugely successful playwright tuition course is oversubscribed on a yearly basis. This means many students are turned away, resulting in lost revenue and potential new talent for the theatre. The solution: build a dynamic and interactive online course, that caters for demand and has a global reach.
From the outset the primary focus has been to offer the student an experience that is both unique and engaging. There is a high level of interactivity through the use of text, video and audio tutorials, combined with live chat and forum facilities, enabling peer to peer communications and individual tutor support. The personalised custom dashboard allows the student to keep a journal of their thoughts as well as highlighting their progress on the course.
The website also features filmed interviews with award-winning writers, including Alan Plater, Shelagh Stephenson, Anthony Neilson and Lee Hall (Billy Elliot, Cooking with Elvis and The Pitman Painters).
User input helped determine the design to ensure a strong identity was maintained. The look and feel highlights a strong link between the course and the theatre, as well as positioning beaplaywright.com as a quality product worthy of the investment.
The Live Theatre is based in Newcastle upon Tyne in the North East of England. It is recognised as one of the country’s leading new writing theatres and has gained an enviable reputation for finding, nurturing and developing regional talent.
