Prospective Students

Theatre Program

The theatre program consists of an intensive nine-credit course called Interrelationships: British Drama and Cultural Life.  This course provides theatre students with an understanding of the British experience - historical and modern - through the medium of theatre. In the seminar and lab portions of the course, you'll review and discuss the plays you attend during the semester.  The course also includes a series of theatre history walking tours led by Professor Tim Kidd, our drama program director.  A graduate of Cambridge and Yale Universities, he is an official "blue badge" London guide.  The rich selection of plays, the backstage tours, the talks by actors and directors, and the Wednesday walking tours make the London Center's drama program stand out among study-abroad opportunities.  The drama program is complemented by acting courses, theatre internships, a Shakespeare class, voice classes and a popular movement course, Stage Combat.

Admission to the drama program is selective so if you're interested please get in touch with the Office of International Programs.  Should students not be selected for the drama program, there are other options for theatre students in London including acting and voice classes, courses such as Drama and the London theatre, Shakespeare and Stage Combat and internship opportunities.
