JUSTIN THEROUX

Bennington College Program ’91


“While at BADA, I was afforded priceless experiences. Ones that gave me the opportunity to attend numerous master classes with incredible veterans of the stage and film… all the while talking in London’s incredible performances on the West End, The Fringe and The Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford Upon Avon. My teacher’s influence, guidance and real life experience grounded me on my own path to explore the craft of acting. BADA is unquestionably a unique experience, and if one is fortunate enough, as I was… can and should be part of every drama student’s education.”
