    “Over the years, BADA has welcomed thousands of phenomenally talented actors from the United States, including 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.

    Your gift helps provide scholarships for the most talented students to attend BADA Programs. Every single gift, regardless of the amount, makes a huge difference to students who might not otherwise be able to attend BADA and study with the leading actors and directors of the British stage. Importantly, 100% of what is donated will be used as direct scholarship support.”
