Six graduating actors from the BA Acting course have secured year long contracts with White Horse Theatre Company, Europe’s largest professional educational touring theatre company.

The actors will be touring productions including A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo and Juliet, across Germany and also in Japan from this August.

The students were selected as part of a workshop run by Michael Dray of White Horse at the Arts University Bournemouth at the end of the summer term. This was part of a new initiative, “Third year employability week”, where professional practitioners and agents are invited to the AUB to work with our students in an informal setting. This week gives students the experience of auditioning in front of industry professionals and also the opportunity to be seen for potential jobs and representation.
