Welcome to Rose Bruford College’s Theatre for Young Audiences Centre, which was launched in April 2011 by its Patron David Wood. The centre is chaired by Jeremy Harrison who is Subject Specialist for our MA in TYA and Programme Director of our Actor Musicianship BA (hons) actor training programme.
The centre has links to TYA-UK. Paul Harman and an international advisory panel form a steering group. Stuart Bennett of London Drama was part of this group until his death in January 2015. The TYA centre aims to be both an advocate for the sector and a resource for practitioners, scholars and students interested in this area of theatre practice. Output will focus on practice, making sense of its location in one of the country’s leading drama schools.
Rose Bruford College has a long-standing relationship with the TYA movement and the centre is part of our strategy to strengthen that relationship.
The Centre includes a range of resources including: links to archives, organizations and practitioners both within the UK and internationally; and accounts of a range of practical research projects. We have an archive attached to centre, which can be accessed by appointment, and run regular events including workshops, study days and discussions.
If you are interested in full or part time study in this area you may wish to consider our MA in Theatre for Young Audiences or our actor training degrees in Acting and Actor Musicianship which include a module focusing on TYA.
