COURSE OUTLINE | ENTRY REQUIRMENTS
At Kingdom Drama School, we provide exceptional part-time training for actors of all abilities, ranging from beginners to working professionals. As a leading part-time drama school, we are driven to fostering students’ creativity and skills through our performance-based training programme supported by an industry-focused curriculum.
The training is facilitated by professional actors who have graduated from the top-tier drama institutions such as RADA and LAMDA. This ensures students receive the highest level of professional training. As part of the course, and in preparation for the industry’s demands, students also have the opportunity to perform at in-house studio theatre performances and for paying audiences at a central London theatre.
Students will also work on a professional film set with our sister production company, Kingdom Motion Pictures. This allows students to understand the technical demands of working for recorded media and how to comport themselves while on set.
Additionally, Kingdom students also have the opportunity to build an industry-ready showreel as part of the Kingdom Actor Showreel Programme. This enables students to confidently showcase their portfolio to industry professionals, an essential tool for actors when they present themselves to casting directors and agents.
