London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art holds Musical Theater workshop at Peta Theater Center, May 21-26
London's most prestigious drama school, The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), holds a workshop in Asia for the first time through a course on Musical Theater at The PETA Theater Center this May 21 to 26.
Founded in 1904 and one of the oldest drama schools in United Kingdom, RADA's roster of graduates include Sir Anthony Hopkins, Clive Owen, Vivien Leigh, Tom Hiddleston and Maggie Gyllenhaal, among others.
The Musical Theater course is a week-long intensive training offered to professional actor-singers who have undergone formal vocal training and are intending to pursue a career in Musical Theater. Participants will work with RADA instructors to develop necessary skills for a successful career in Musical Theater, working on solo pieces, a duet or trio and an ensemble number.
Participants will also be given guidance on casting and with developing an audition repertoire. At the end of the course, students will perform selected pieces for an invited audience then followed by individual feedback.
The course is also rare chance for Filipino performers to earn a RADA certificate upon completion of the workshop.
