The University of Bedfordshire Theatre

Set in the heart of the University’s Bedford campus, this busy theatre welcomes new and existing audiences to see a range of student and professional work including contemporary dance, theatre, comedy, family shows and music. Events are open to students, staff and the wider community.

The University of Bedfordshire also offers a series of events for Luton audiences, presented in partnership with the UK Centre for Carnival Arts (UKCCA).

This course will prepare you for a career in the professional theatre industry by training you in a range of acting techniques.

You will write and direct your work to be shown in our professional theatre and perform large scale work made by professional directors.

There is a focus on learning entrepreneurial skills to help you find, audition, apply for, and create your own work, as well as developing your teaching and leadership skills.

You will also be encouraged to think, write and talk about how theatre theory informs your work.
