As part of The Arts University Bournemouth’s Summer Season, the School of Performance which incorporates the acting, costume and make-up courses, will be showcasing ‘Exit Stage Left’ an electrifying spectacle of performance and design, at Pavilion Dance in Bournemouth on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th June.

‘Exit Stage Left’ is a unique contemporary theatre piece which involves the work of our graduating School of Performance students. Incorporating excerpts from this academic year’s productions (including Ship of Fools and Coyote was Going There) as well as newly devised material, this is a bold and innovative extravaganza offering the audience an experience unlike any other.

Performed at Pavilion Dance in the heart of Bournemouth’s art-deco Pavilion Theatre, ‘Exit Stage Left’ marks the culmination of three years of study for our School of Performance students and signifies the start of their journey into the professional arena. Over 150 students will take part in this production from all three courses. This collaboration between the courses emulates the way in which the creative industries work together, and lets the students experience the thrill of a live production. It is just one example of how the University’s specialist courses work together to realise innovative ideas that help prepare students for careers in the creative industries.

Production Director and Course Leader for Acting, Doug Cockle, commented “‘Exit Stage Left’ signifies the culmination of two – three years of hard study for our talented students and for many of them, will signify the start of a professional career upon graduation next month. Our students have worked tirelessly on this production and the end result is certainly one that will thrill and delight our audiences!”

To watch an inspiring celebration of creative talent, ‘Exit Stage Left’ is on Thursday 9th June at 12.30pm and 7.30pm and Friday 10th June at 2.30pm and 7.30pm at Pavilion Dance in Bournemouth. Tickets can be purchased through the Pavilion Dance Box Office on 01202 203630.
