Theatre training is expensive
RADA produces the world’s greatest actors and technicians for the creative industries. Fact. We achieve this by offering specialist and highly individuated teaching. But this level bespoke performance and technical training is expensive.
RADA is a charity. The income we receive from student fees and government funding supplies only half of what we need to train our students. We generate income from various business activities including Short Courses, Box Office sales, and RADA in Business. We also raise funds from grants from trusts and foundations. But this leaves £2 million each year for us to raise from private sources to continue our work.
Most of our students also suffer a shortfall in the amount they need to study here, even after taking out the full loans available to them. Unlike other degree courses, the contact time at RADA is in excess of 35 hours per week, meaning students are unable to subsidise loans with part-time work.
We need continued support to sustain our world-leading teaching and to ensure performance and theatrecraft education is accessible for all. We need your help to educate and entertain for years to come.
