About LAMDA Local

LAMDA Local is a brand-new programme aimed at bringing the arts closer to schools in West London. We believe that every young person deserves the chance to explore their creativity and unlock their artistic potential. Through LAMDA Local, we'll be working closely with state schools in the area to provide exciting opportunities for students to engage with the performing arts.

LAMDA Local will support schools by offering: 

  • Free tickets to LAMDA Productions and post-show Q&As with the cast and production team
  • ​An annual Shakespeare in Schools Tour where we bring abridged Shakespeare performances and workshops into your school
  • Workshop opportunities that aim to ignite imagination, boost confidence, and nurture a lifelong love for the arts
  • Careers events that give students the opportunity to explore the multitude of careers in the Arts
  • Bespoke drama lesson or school production support from LAMDA Tutors or Graduates.  

Shakespeare in Schools tour

Each year, our graduating MFA Professional Acting students tour local secondary schools and colleges with fast-paced adaptations of Shakespeare's popular works.

The tour is aimed at students in Year 9 – Year 13, with two different plays offered each year. This also includes the delivery of post-show workshops and Q&As.

STEM in Theatre Day at LAMDA

In 2023, we were thrilled to host groups from local schools in Hammersmith & Fulham to showcase how STEM skills can be used in theatre, including exploring technical specialties such as stage management, lighting and sound. Browse some of the photos from this event below.
