Shakespeare in Performance at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art


Spring and Fall

Program Overview

Immerse yourself in Shakespeare. Live in London. Experience the West End.

For over 10-years, Tisch London has maintained an exclusive collaboration with the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), offering actors an intensive, full-time semester immersed in the world of Shakespeare. 

Under the direction of RADA’s Associate Director, Geoff Bullen, develop the skills necessary for the performance of Elizabethan and Jacobean drama. You spend three days a week throughout the semester within the prestigious RADA facilities, whose halls have housed such acting legends as Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman, Joan Collins, Vivien Leigh, Mark Rylance, Dominic West and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

In addition to your RADA training, spend two days a week taking classes at the University of London’s Senate House. While on the University of London campus, you have access to a myriad of resources such as lunch-time concerts, free events, the University’s Student Union and computer labs.  Housing is mere moments from campus, and London’s incredible culture is at your fingertips.
