The BADA Midsummer in Oxford (MIO) programme, based in Magdalen College in Oxford University, is designed for serious actors over the age of eighteen and focuses on British acting techniques with an emphasis on Shakespeare.  Participants work and live alongside the faculty in Oxford. The faculty consists of leading British theatre practitioners and faculty from top American graduate programmes, and is run in association with Yale School of Drama.

Two-Part Application Process

Another BADA Option: BADA’s four-week Black British Theatre course provides an overview of contemporary Black British theatre and performance. Play texts by major Black British Writers such as Roy Williams, Winsome Pinnock and Debbie Tucker Green, will be analysed from social and cultural contexts framed by theories of identity, representation, nationalism, race, gender, sexuality and class.

This program would be eligible by a petition application.
