Catch Our Alumni

Quiz Night success with Stiff & Kitsch

Spring sprang into action with the success of our first ever Quiz Night in support of the Student Hardship Fund. Hammersmith & Fulham residents, LAMDA alumni and supporters put their heads together and their knowledge of the Academy to the test. The evening was guided by a musical rendition of the Quiz rules and more comical musings and music by Stiff & Kitsch: LAMDA alumni and multi-award winning duo Rhiannon Neads, Sally O’Leary, and accompanist James Taylor, who all graduated in 2014.

The night raised £2,000 in support of Student Hardship and we're already planning next year's event!

Genesis LAMDA Network: John Lithgow announced

This summer, John Lithgow (1969) announced he will be joining the Genesis LAMDA Network as a mentor, lending his knowledge and expertise to a final-year actor. John, a supporter of the Academy, said of LAMDA: “I love the place and believe in its mission. It did so much for me and for scores of other young [students]”. John is the first of many US-based mentors in the network, as we continue to grow this valuable programme in the US as well as in the UK.


Here we go again…

And a shimmering occasion to look forward to this August, catch three of our alumni in the summer musical of 2018, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again. Jeremy Irvine (2009), Hugh Skinner (2006), and Dominic Cooper (2000) will all be sharing the silver screen with four-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep and the Queen of Pop, Cher. The film had its premiere down the road at Hammersmith's Eventim Apollo this week and it opens in cinemas on Friday 20 July - be sure to book yourself a ticket!
