For more than 30 years, BADA has brought together actors from the United States and around the world to train with leading actors and directors of the British stage. Attending BADA is life-changing. In addition to training, it gives students life-long connections with others as passionate about their art as they are.
BADA is committed to a diverse student body and is dedicated to training talented actors regardless of their background or financial situation. We need your help to continue to pursue this goal.
“Being at BADA is a unique experience for students – it not only introduces them to the rigorous training of a British drama school through classical text, but brings them to life, either in the wonderful world of Oxford University or in London, one of the most (if not the most) exciting theatre cities in the world. BADA immerses them in a new, vibrant artistic environment and builds connections across disciplines, across cultures, across oceans.”
Brian Cox CBE
“Over the years, BADA has welcomed thousands of phenomenally talented actors from the United States, including Chadwick Boseman (MIO ’98), Anna Gunn (LTP ’88), Brandon Victor Dixon (MIO ’98), Paul Giamatti (MIO’ 89), Tarell Alvin McCraney (MIO ’05), Phillipa Soo (MCP ’07), and Bellamy Young (MIO ’90), many of whom have only been able to train with our renowned faculty due to the support of our generous donors. Every single gift, regardless of the amount, makes a huge difference.”
