At Kingdom, we focus on delivering exceptional part-time training coupled with current opportunities to ensure our actors are prepared for the business. The school is home to a diverse student body who represent a variety of different backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures, paving the way for a more dynamic industry. 


THE TUTORS


To ensure the students benefit from the highest level of preparation and training for the industry, the school only employs tutors who are active, professional actors, and have graduated from top-tier drama institutions.

Collectively Kingdom Drama School tutors have worked in productions for Universal Pictures, Lionsgate, Paramount Pictures, US TV shows for HBO, UK Television for Channel 4, iTV and the BBC.

They have also worked on critically acclaimed theatre productions for The National Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal Court.


MASTERCLASS SESSIONS


Kingdom Drama School also invite profiled actors working in mainstream film, television and theatre to share their journeys with the students and discuss the lessons they have learnt in their careers thus far.

The sessions hold great significance as these actors have not attended full-time drama school and directly relate to the students who are following a similar path into the industry.

The masterclasses provide a great source of inspiration, and offers invaluable insight into the world of acting and the greater industry.
