Wait List


Diploma Programme Theatre
Category 1


Master class

All participants will take part in one 90 minute master class on Bazigong with former Shanghai Kunju Theatre performer Jo Riley.



All participants will attend two professional theatre performances.

Broadway’s COME FROM AWAY is a Best Musical winner all across North America! This New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

This breathtaking new musical written by Tony® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by this year’s Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, “It takes you to a place you never want to leave!”

And Groan Ups. From the parents of THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG comes a brand-new comedy all about growing up.

Are we the same people at 30 as we were at 13?
Does school life determine our future?
Do we ever grow out of our school crush?

Playing an unruly classroom of kids and anarchic high school teenagers, through to the aches and pains of adulthood, the original Mischief company
are back in the West End with their first new play since 2016.

Please note – theatre productions may be subject to change according to numbers and factors outside our control.


The workshop starts at 9:00am on Monday 30th September 2019.
The workshop finishes at 3:00pm on Wednesday 2nd October 2019.
