The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) and London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) are no longer with Drama UK, an advocacy group for vocational drama training. But should Americans care?
Probably not, especially if it’s a quality drama school you seek. It seems like it’s more of an accounting issue as the problem centers on high accreditation fees, which don’t fluctuate due to the size of the school — 80 vs. 14,000, according to BroadwayWorld.com. The group also certifies vocational university and college courses.
