London Theatre Program: BADA

Students in a perfromance of The Way of the World, Fall 2006

Sponsored by Sarah Lawrence College and the British American Drama Academy (BADA), the London Theatre Program offers undergraduates from Sarah Lawrence as well as other schools an opportunity to work and study with leading actors and directors from the world of British theatre. Through a combination of classes, tutorials, master classes and performances, students take part in the great theatrical tradition of Britain.

Designed for dedicated students who wish to study acting in London, the program offers enrollment in either the Fall or Spring, for single semester study. Those wishing to pursue their training more intensely are strongly encouraged to begin their training in the Fall and continue with the Advanced London Theatre Program in the Spring semester.

Both programs offer acting classes with leading artists from the British stage. These are complemented by individual tutorials where students will work one-on-one with their teachers. A faculty selected from Britain's foremost drama schools teaches technical classes in Voice, Movement and Stage-Fighting. In addition, master classes and workshops feature more of Britain's fine actors and directors.

This intense conservatory training is accompanied by classes in theatre history and theatre criticism, tickets to some of the best productions the season has to offer and the experience of performing in a professional theatre.

On London

"I have had the rare opportunity to study with some of Britain's finest actors and directors, and I have been involved with my craft in a way that does not exist back home. For months now, I have been immersed in London theatre, where most of the work is surprisingly young, vital and exciting. BADA offers an intensive, conservatory-style program that will push you on every level, leaving you exhausted, satisfied and extremely proud of what you have accomplished." —Past BADA participant
