RADA History

Founded by Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree in 1904, the Academy was established the following year in Gower/Malet Street where it has functioned ever since.

The new, fully accessible, Gower/Malet Street buildings re-opened following extensive renovation and rebuilding in 2000. They house three purpose built theatres – the new Jerwood Vanbrugh Theatre, a highly flexible proscenium design, the refurbished GBS Studio Theatre and the new John Gielgud Studio Theatre.

In addition there are technical workshops, a sound studio with three associated control rooms, wardrobe and electrics teaching rooms, acting studios, administration offices, box office and foyer with both bar and catering facilities open to the general public.

In the 1990s the Academy acquired further property in Chenies Street which is adjacent to Gower Street. These premises have also been rebuilt and refurbished during the academic year 2003/4 and are due to be completed in 2005 which will mark the final stage of the Academy’s Centenary Project.

The Chenies Street facilities include the RADA library with over 25,000 books, property making department, acting teaching studios, student and staff common rooms and the Refectory providing subsidised meals.
