The academic year begins with a performance project, and you’ll spend the rest of the year developing your skills in other styles of theatre. The Arc Theatre at our Trowbridge campus, along with a dance studio and newly refurbished drama studio, provide exciting spaces to train, explore and rehearse singing, dance and drama. At our Salisbury campus, students are trained in partnership with Wiltshire Creative, an organisation which comprises the combined vision, creative energy and ambition of the Salisbury Arts Centre, Salisbury International Arts Festival and Salisbury Playhouse. You’ll spend time at the Arts Centre and Playhouse, with further sessions in our well-equipped performing arts studio on campus. You’ll have the opportunity to choose either a performance or production pathway.
Our Performing and Production Arts courses provide an exciting, dynamic space for you to build your confidence, explore your talents and develop as a performer or producer in an inspiring environment.
