Arguably the most famous acting school in the English-speaking world, London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), founded in 1904, presents specially-edited versions of renowned plays and adaptations of great literary classics onboard Queen Mary 2 during the entire Transatlantic season.
During each Transatlantic Crossing, guests may take up to three RADA dramatic workshops _ and note: sign-up is on a first-come, first-served basis. RADA also performs abridged plays such as "The Merchant of Venice" and "The Canterbury Tales," hosts a "bedtime" story reading in the Grand Lobby and also offers poetry readings.
