Date: 2nd Feb 2018
Third-year BA (Hons) Performing Arts (Film, TV and Stage) students at Buckinghamshire New University are treading the boards for a series of plays at a variety of venues as part of their course.
The students will be performing shows at The Old Town Hall in High Wycombe town centre and in Banbury, Oxfordshire; Oxford; Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire; and in Camden, London.
Course Leader Dr Nic Fryer said: "We are really proud of the way our third year students work independently to produce and direct shows in professional theatres around the country.
“The shows this year offer a great range of styles that hopefully offer everyone something to enjoy!”
Students will be performing the farce Rumours, featuring a tangled tale of lies and deception, by Neil Simon at The Mill Arts Centre in Spiceball Park Road, Banbury, at 7pm on Tuesday 27 February; and at The Old Town Hall in High Wycombe at 7.30pm on Thursday 1 March.
