Do I need work experience to study theatre?

Is work experience vital for me to get into university to study theatre/performance design? If so, then how do I get it?

I am 18 years old and live in Newcastle Upon Tyne. I am currently studying the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design and it is the coming up to applying to university.

I am aware that work experience is preferred, however I have emailed various places and none have got back to me with a positive response. If I have no experience will I get into the university course?
