Access to Acting
Are you interested in performing? Do you want to know more about drama school?
These fun taster workshops for 16-20 year olds are designed to give you an introduction into acting.
This is an opportunity for deaf and disabled young people, specifically those with physical and sensory disabilities. The workshops are a chance to participate in a practical inclusive drama workshop. It will be led by RADA teachers and industry professionals who have experience working in an inclusive way, you will find out what it’s like to train as an actor through exploring acting, movement, and warm-up exercises.
We have up to 10 places for per workshop.
