Workshops

These focus on a range of topics that have been developed to help students with their studies and to aid their personal development. We can offer workshops based on your specific drama needs. All workshops are run by RADA tutors, directors, and experienced RADA graduates.

Sessions are designed to give students a deeper understanding of drama or technical theatre techniques that can be transferred into other areas of their work and life.

Workshops are for up to 20 students per group and the length can be adjusted to accommodate your school timetable.

Prior to all workshops, the facilitator will contact you to discuss your objectives and student needs.

Drama workshops include:

  • Acting technique
  • Classical text (with a focus on Shakespeare)
  • Contemporary text
  • Improvisation
  • Movement (including Laban, animal studies and character)
  • Devising
  • Voice

Technical theatre workshops include:

  • Sound
  • Lighting
  • Props
  • Scenic art
  • Make-up
  • Wardrobe

Careers talks

We offer informal Q&A sessions led by recent RADA graduates.These sessions give young people an insight into drama school; applying, the admissions process, life at RADA and a career in theatre.

Primary Schools

We are currently developing work with primary schools in the local community. We are passionate about opening access to the Academy for young children aged 8+ in order to provide an insight into our training
