As a Hollins study abroad theatre student, you’ll engage with the world of theatre in the classroom and beyond. Experience a variety of shows, from rebooted classics to challenging and exciting new works in a range of venues, and enjoy additional activities that will further enrich and expand your theatrical experience.

In recent terms, students have enjoyed an exclusive post-show meeting with the cast of The Woman in Black; explored the city’s Shakespeare on Screen program with actors from the BBC’s The Hollow Crown; toured Shakespeare’s Globe theatre; encountered the haunted past of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane; visited the National Theatre’s workshops to see the puppets from War Horse; and worked with a leading UK magician.

The London program also has its own black box theatre space in the program study center with a fully-equipped lighting rig and sound system. It can host student performances, visiting shows, and a range of creative workshops. In London, you’ll feel like you’re at the heart of the drama in the world of theatre as both an audience member and a performer.

You can also see London theatre from the inside by applying for one of the many internship opportunities at some of London’s most interesting professional theatres. For centuries, London has distinguished itself as one of the most dynamic and influential theatre centers in the world. Go see why!
