The British American Drama Academy (BADA) was founded in 1984 to enable students from across the world to study classical theatre with leading actors and directors of the British theatre.

BADA runs the following programs:

  • The London Theatre Program in association with Sarah Lawrence College; a full-time conservatory acting program, over one semester.
  • The Midsummer in Oxford Program; an intensive acting program held over four weeks at Magdalen College, Oxford in association with the Yale School of Drama.
  • The Midsummer Conservatory Program for high school students held over three weeks at St John’s College, Oxford.
  • The Shakespeare in London Program in association with Sarah Lawrence College; a full-time semester long program from Spring ’22.
  • Greek Theatre – From the Ancient World to the Modern Through Theory and Performance; a four-week program launching in June ’21 based in London, Athens and Oxford.

We are seeking two new board members. The Board of 12 Trustees oversees the company’s strategy, finances, operations and governance, working with the outstanding artistic and operational company management and leadership. Like most institutions at this time, BADA is reassessing future opportunities and ensuring that the organisation has the maximum flexibility to meet the likely challenges ahead.

New board members will have a passion for theatre, theatre education and intercultural learning, and have the confidence and ability to become part of an experienced and highly-motivated board guiding BADA’s future.

Of particular interest will be candidates with skills and experience in the following areas:

  • Diversity and equality
  • Educational planning/US education particularly study abroad
  • Partnerships and outreach
  • Financial or legal supervision
  • Digital Communication

We want our Trustees to share our passion for theatre and British theatre training, and have a strong empathy with our vision to enable US and other international students to participate fully in our courses, irrespective of barriers they may face linked to ethnicity, class, disability, gender, sexuality, socio-economic or any other.

Essential requirements:

  • Commitment to the organisation and a willingness to devote the necessary time and effort
  • Good, independent judgement and strategic vision
  • An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship
  • A deep commitment to promoting anti-racism, equality and diversity
  • An ability to work effectively as a member of a team
  • An understanding of the respective roles of the Chair, Trustees and Chief Executive
