The Theater Foreign Study Program offers students the opportunity to combine historical study and professional practice in theater at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), one of the world's great conservatories. The program is a unique chance for students to develop their craft while taking advantage of London's incomparable theatrical tradition and vibrant cultural scene.
Theater 60: Classical Performance I & II are taught by the LAMDA faculty. These courses offer an intensive experience in classical theater training focused on acting, (including improvisation), movement (including movement theater, clown and historic dance), and voice (including poetry, prose, solo and choral singing). Texts include Shakespeare and either Jacobean or Restoration plays. This typical British conservatoire experience is designed for students interested in acting, directing, playwriting, design, stage management, dramaturgy or criticism. These courses will be graded as credit/ no credit.
Theater 62: Plays in Performance is taught by the Dartmouth instructor with guest speakers. It involves attendance at an average of two to three productions per week and a weekly seminar. Guest speakers represent various aspects of theatrical productions. You will receive a letter grade for this course.
In addition to the many London theaters, including the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre, students will have full access to London's cultural resources in music, dance, film, and museums. When practical, field trips to historical sites of theatrical interest and backstage tours of theater facilities will be scheduled.
