The Directors’ Exam

The Academy’s Actors’ & Directors’ Development Day (previously called the Directors’ Exam) is a public showing of students directing exercises that have been completed during the previous term.  These performances take place on the penultimate Saturday of terms 1, 2 & 3.

Term 4 (the Summer Term) is when our full scale productions are performed, together with our well-known Children’s Theatre Show (see SofA productions) – all these performances are open to the public.  The dates of these productions will be published within the ‘Whats On’ section closer to the time.

The Development Day is an excellent opportunity to see the standard of our students work and, as it is a marked assessment with tutors providing feedback after each piece, the Academy’s highly regarded educational process at work.

The event is a very enjoyable showcase of the Academy’s talent.  We very much look forward to seeing you at the next one.
