We offer monthly one-off workshops, each workshop is based on a different topic from singing to Shakespeare. For non-professional actors over 60. No experience necessary.
During these workshops, participants will be given the opportunity to experience a range of different different topics; from Shakespeare to voice, puppetry to Alexander Technique, each workshop will be led by a different RADA tutor on a variety of subjects.
These workshops are self-contained, 2.5 hour sessions, giving participants the opportunity to come along on a date that suits them.
Workshops are £10 each.
Please note: participants may only book for one workshop per term to cater for high demand. If you do book for more than one workshop, you will be refunded.

RADA has a resident theatre company for people over the age of 60. The Elders Company meets weekly for a year (January - December) during term time. The Company gains various workshops from RADA Tutors, developing dramatic skills and abilities. They also work with a comissioned writer and stage a production in one of RADA's theatres in December.
The Elders Company is not for professional actors. It is a community initiative designed for people who are interested in developing drama skills in their retirement.
