RADA Shakespeare Awards
What People Say
WHAT CANDIDATES SAY
"Whatever your level of knowledge and skill, you will be challenged and stretched to make new breakthroughs in your approach and understanding to acting Shakespeare. This is no traditional exam or award, but a process where you will constantly learn and be encouraged to evaluate and extend yourself; it's a personal journey and you'll learn to connect with the text on a very human level, and really feel it (not just read it and think about it). I'm at the very start of my Shakespeare journey with RADA - bronze - and am already humbled and inspired in equal measure, and extremely hungry for more! This is a special and unique place to study and the Shakespeare Awards open that experience up to everyone from any walk of life."
“one of the best experiences of my life [...] I enjoyed it all so much that I've now decided to take my Silver Certificate. I definitely recommend them to anyone.”
“The RADA Award has opened up new doors for me, without it I might never have gotten into Shakespeare.”
WHAT TEACHERS AND PARENTS SAY
"A really helpful, informative, stimulating and fun day. The Groundworks day course was really excellent and the RADA tutor's enthusiasm was inspiring and contagious!"
“My daughter, Rebekah, found the RADA Shakespeare scheme really brought Shakespeare to life for her. It hugely inspired her and developed her confidence. It also gave her the courage to try for a drama scholarship at school...and she was successful!”
“It is a fantastic experience for students, and they really appreciate the opportunity to perform for and be assessed by RADA teachers, who are recognised as the best in their field.”
Toby Yarwood – Clayesmore School
“Students cannot fail to achieve a greater depth of understanding and appreciation of what a gift Shakespeare offers. It increases both their confidence and their ambition.”
Nora Aveston – Colchester College
“I can bear personal testimony to the skills I’ve learned and honed, my increased understanding of Shakespeare, and the sheer pleasure it’s given me, both as teacher and student.”
