Performing Arts, Dance and Drama students are well catered for at Strode. Students have access to qualified staff and a range of rooms, which include the College’s Drama Studio and specialist dance rehearsal facilities. Opportunities for live performance are a feature of our courses facilitated by our theatre company approach. These often present opportunities for Media students to film and video live performances as part of their course curriculum. These performances can be in Strode Theatre, the Drama Studio, the informal atmosphere of the College Refectory, tours out to local schools or at other well supported venues in the locality. Many performances receive critical acclaim from the local community and the press.
The 2011 Performing Arts musical "Back to the 80s" was a huge success and received a praising review in the local paper!
