Christian drama schools in the UK/Eire?

Recommended Posts

As the title suggests, are you aware of drama schools in either the UK or Ireland preferably those which are run by Christians? Fire away if anything comes to mind.

I'm asking because someone very close to me is planning on going abroad to one of the aforementioned countries and is interested in taking up an acting career. Thanks for any hints...

I can't even tell you what Christian run schools here offer a drama program (although there may still be much drama occurring outside the program!) and recent thread notwithstanding. I have a couple of friends from the UK. I'll see if they know of any offerings.

I don't know of any, although I know of at least one year-out program that has a specialist drama track. THere just isn't the same proportion of CHristian schools over here, let alone drama schools.

I heard back from one friend. The first two are Christian schools, the third is a para-church performing/visual arts org, the last, well, even I've heard of them! Here is what she has to say:

"Hello mate,

Not really come across much in terms of christian orientated colleges - other than theology or bible colleges.

Here's a couple i stumbled across:

I would check out Artisan though as they may be able to point you in the right direction:

But if its regular acting then you need to go to RADA:

Hope that helps"

Thanks to all of you who contributed! This has been very helpful indeed. Thanks, jfutral, fo that bunch of links. We will definitely check them out.

The reason why we were looking specifically for schools/academies with a Christian slant/background is that my wife (the person very close to me -- hehe) already attended drama school, but some issues she had with some things that had been taught there let her consider Christian schools first if at all possible. Unfortunately due to an illness she had to drop out of school, and it closed down soon afterwards... but she still has an itch to do something in this regard.
