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. 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 that goal.
“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.”

Your support helps provide scholarships for the most talented students to further their training and development by attending BADA’s 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 our renowned faculty.
To quote former Dean and Director Ian Wooldridge, this commitment to diversity enables us to “properly reflect the world we live in, hold the mirror up to nature, and tell the story of the people to the people.” BADA’s hope is to continue to expand on this commitment in the coming years but we can only do this with your help and support.
