Stratford College student headed to RADA

Stratford Editorial 8th Apr, 2024   0

A THEATRE-loving student from Stratford College has bagged a place at RADA.

Astro Clack has accepted a place on a three-year degree course to study Technical Theatre and Stage Management at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.

RADA is a world leader in dramatic arts training and has courses to prepare the next generation of talent in areas such as acting, stage management, design and technical stagecraft.

Astro, from Banbury, has always had a passion for theatre, performing in a variety of musical theatre shows growing up. However, the 18-year-old realised performing wasn’t for them.

Astro applied for the Technical Theatre and Stage Management course at RADA after hearing a friend’s brother was already there and enjoying it.

After a successful application, Astro was invited to an interview and workshop in London. They were accepted on the course which only takes 20 students.

Astro said: “It’s very exciting. I’m so happy about it. To be learning in a place with such skilled teachers and working alongside those with a similar passion for tech is incredible.

“This course will allow me to learn about a wide range of areas so then I can ensure I will follow a path that is right for me. Plus, I will get the chance to have work placements in the West End which is amazing.”
