Performances give our students the opportunity to put their learning into practice across a range of performance styles. This gives them the opportunity to demonstrate how far they've come in their training in front of a live audience.
All our performances are supported by our Technical Theatre and Design for Performance students, who undertake lighting design and operation, sound technology, set design and creation, costume and props making and management, as well as front of house duties. Without them, and their skills and technical knowledge, our performances couldn’t go on.
Here are some images from some of our recent performances.

The Big I Am
Our 2nd year Actors brought to life this modem take on Henrik Ibsen’s classic play, journeying from wartime Britain to the ends of the earth and beyond - a life flashing before your very eyes.
