The Theater Foreign Study Program offers students the opportunity to combine Theater Studies 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.
This typical British conservatoire experience is designed for students interested in acting, directing, playwriting, design, stage management, dramaturgy, or criticism.
All FSP students will be enrolled in three courses:
THEA 60: Classical Performance I
THEA 61: Classical Performance II
THEA 62: Plays in Performance - Perception and Analysis
THEA 60 and THEA 61 will be taught by instructors from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
THEA 62: Plays in Performance - Perception and Analysis will be taught by a Dartmouth instructor and involves attending an average of two to three productions per week and participating in a weekly seminar. 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.
