About AUB Productions.
We have an in-house Studio Theatre which hosts a number of productions during the first half of the academic year.
During the second half of the year students gain the opportunity to perform and work on productions at venues including the Lighthouse Theatre, Poole, and Pavilion Dance South West, Bournemouth.
Students from across BA (Hons) Acting, BA (Hons) Costume and Performance Design, BA (Hons) Make-Up for Media and Performance and BA (Hons) Creative Writing degrees collaborate on each production. This provides students with a key insight into the industry and for developing skills in working as actors, designers and makers which make up theatre.
The actors also take on other roles within this process, such as Stage Management, Assistant Director and Publicity Officer. Costume and Performance Designs students take on roles including set and costume design and making – constructing props, costumes and millinery. Those from Make-up for Media and Performance provide prosthetics, hair and make-up.
