Teachers 

BERU TESSEMA

Beru has worked extensively within film and TV. His teaching method is the Meisner technique - an approach to acting which was developed by the American theatre practitioner Sanford Meisner who said that “Acting is living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.”

MELANIE JESSOP

Melanie will run games and exercises leading to improvisations in which students build relationships and situations from immediate response rather than pre-planned structures; this is the foundational work Mel is doing with 1st term RADA students and she has found it to be great for stimulating playfulness and confidence in imaginative choices.

NONA SHEPPHARD

Nona is Chair of the RADA audition panel and will give practical help and guidance about drama school, theatre, film and TV auditions plus self-taping.

*Intermediate -Intermediate courses are for those who have professional acting experience or have attended previous acting training; and who do not consider themselves beginners.
