Our training


How it works?


Being part of The British Theatre Academy gives young people

free and affordable theatre opportunities!

Auditions and your first productions are always free to take part in!

Once you have completed your first show with us you will then be assessed as to whether you will be invited to join us on our all-year round programme at our affordable fees!

Some bursaries are awarded through means testing!

Each year we announce our free summer season which plays at Southwark Playhouse.

This season as with all BTA productions is via audition.

Those successful will be offered places in our season for that year.

We also have many special projects including concerts in venues such as Cadogan Hall, Hackney Empire and West End Theatres.

These will be also through our audition process.

join the bta family!
