PYT LAMDA

Weekly Theatre Lessons

Prague Youth Theatre offers students aged 6 - 17 years old the opportunity to prepare for London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) examinations.

We offer exams in Acting, Shakespeare, Devising Drama, Musical Theatre and Public Speaking. Acting exams develop a strong speaking voice and good memory skills by learning and performing monologues. Shakespeare exams provide the opportunity to develop an understanding and appreciation of characterisation and use of language by exploring Shakespeare's plays and sonnets. Devising Drama exams develop creativity by exploring ideas and themes and realising them through devised dramatic performances. Public speaking exams develop skills for constructing and delivering talks, presentations and speeches. Musical Theatre exams help students to develop their acting and singing skills. Exams encourage empathy and self-awareness, as learners are required to present believable characters through acting and song. 

Lessons are taught either individually or in groups for 1 hour a week for 15 weeks and exams take place twice a year at our very own LAMDA centre.

Prague Youth Theatre has a 100% examination pass rate and our students consistently receive merits and distinctions.

For more information about the LAMDA organisation please visit their website here.

Lessons take place at the Prague Youth Theatre Studio at Art Centrum Botic from Mondays - Fridays from 4pm.
