So fanily plans on hold, then if you are o...

Re: National Youth Theatre

DS did the Intake Acting course last summer, and auditioned in February for this year (though we don't know what for exactly). We were told we'd hear by the beginning of May, and then had an update to say we'd hear by the end May - we still haven't heard, though I know some of his friends have. Has...

Re: RADA Foundation- or Rose Bruford for drama?

While on subject (loosely) of Foundation , has anyone had any experience of Drama Centre foundation what's it like and success in getting onto a BA course at any of the 'top 10' drama schools.

He said he wouldn't have enjoyed ...
