Teaching Theatre

Given that I was the first ever theatre volunteer, it went very well, aside from the confusion by the school at the beginning. Could be a bit tighter in communication bu overall a fantastic experience

Fantastic Experience! Wish it was longer!

The Summer Shakespeare Intensive program with RADA was an amazing experience. The teachers were so passionate that even though you were working really hard, you couldn't help but smile. I loved every moment we were in class.

Great way to learn about the industry

I really enjoyed this program. You will learn a lot about the theatre industry and what it is actually like to work as an actor. It was incredible to work with actual West End performers and learn from their experiences. My favorite thing about this program, though, was going with a group of 9 other people and getting to know them over the course of the three weeks. You really become like a family and grow as performers together. It made the experience so much more worthwhile to come out of it with friends who share your passion for the art form.

Definitely recommended

I went to London for PAA's West End Musical Theater program for three weeks this summer. The actual program of classes is run by a separate company in England and the program you're actually attending in London is called West End on Demand. I highly recomend West End on Demand! The program is well organized, and your teachers are excellent, working professionals in the west end who all have amazing wisdom to share. The program takes you to see three shows for free and you're taking classes in studios where professionals are practicing and auditioning every day. For those traveling abroad to attend, West End on Demand will (for a significantly smaller fee than PAA) reserve you a room in a hostel to stay. Going to the West End on Demand program through PAA is nice because you have a support system right from the get go. They help you know what to pack and to prepare for in London, they pick you up at the airport and take you to your accommodation (which is significantly nicer than the hostel you'd get through WEOD), they prepay your oyster card (London public transportation travel card thing) for the first week of your stay and they'll take you on trips around London to places like Buckingham Palace and the London Eye so you get the whole London experience rather than just the West End experience. So if you are thinking about going to London for the West End on Demand program, here are your options...Book it cheaply through Rachel Bingham in London, stay in a hostel, and not have a group of people there to support you and help you make your way around a foreign country OR Pay a lot more, book it through PAA, and get everything that West End On Demand offers, a family of people that you meet in the airport and live with for three weeks, and extra help navigating London. Your choice. :)

Performing Arts Abroad South Africa internship

My time in South Africa was overall a very positive and eye-opening experience. During my time there, I was able to visit the local townships and experience what it is like to live under extreme racial tensions. I was able to share my musical knowledge with the local people there and was also able to become culturally integrated into society. I learned a lot about the local culture there and would definitely encourage future students to pursue this opportunity.
