Performers and set designers test their mettle for real in our “black box” style theatre.
With flexible seating for up to 100, the studio theatre also boasts the latest in professional lighting and sound equipment.
Technical expertise is supplied by a dedicated team who show new hands the ropes (and lights, and props, and speakers). The collaborative productions we stage are always popular events in our calendar!
Pavilion Dance Southwest and Lighthouse Theatre
To give students experience of bigger spaces, we have close links with nationally renowned local venues.
Pavilion Dance SouthWest, a 200-seat theatre in Bournemouth, stages touring dance events and conferences.
The Lighthouse, a 600-seat venue in Poole, shows an exciting programme of national tours and local productions.
We’ve staged many productions at these theatres and can vouch that they make great performance spaces.
