Title: Speed: Modifying training needs: The transition from stage to screen

COVID-19 has had a severe impact across the globe and we have seen how it has caused major disruption across all facets of life. In Singapore, the live entertainment industry alone has taken a major toll. Live audiences are no longer a factor and there is a limitation in production sizes and even the number of singers. This has caused the push towards ‘digitising theatre’, which is easier said than done. Theatre is not film. Film is not theatre. So how does one go about creating their shows in this landscape? More importantly, how do we prepare students for the world they will graduate into? The need for understanding technology and the processes of digitisation is something that is not easy, and we see ourselves entering a new hybrid form of art. After experiencing the last two semesters of a full academic year during COVID-19, it is apparent that there needs to be a significant shift in how students in institutions approach art forms and how technology is integrated into their training. Students should be armed and enabled with more frameworks of how their art forms speak across different media and experience first-hand the processes of mounting these types of productions for the digital space. Using specific examples explored by our BA(Hons) Musical Theatre and the Diploma in Theatre Production and Management Programmes, this study will give light to how LASALLE College of the Arts navigated a full academic year where students were exposed to new processes and workflows so that they could see the varied spectrum of mounting shows that range from stage to screen, and everything in-between.
