Celebrating WB's Enduring Relationship with RADA

29 May 2018 - By TW Staff

Earlier this month, Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) President Sir Kennth Branagh joined Josh Berger CBE, President & Managing Director of Warner Bros. UK, Ireland & Spain, on stage at a special event to celebrate five years of Warner Bros. Creative Talent—part of the company’s commitment to invest in skills and training—and ten years of Principal Partnership between Warner Bros. and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

L-R: Grace Reinhold-Gittins, Josh Berger, Sir Kenneth Branagh, Rienkje Attoh, Abraham Popoola, Deb Lincoln.

The event, held at RADA on May 8, welcomed Warner Bros. Creative Talent’s fifth season of scholars, trainees and apprentices, and featured performances from RADA students and young people from inclusive theatre company Chickenshed, a panel discussion with Creative Talent alumni and a Q&A with Branagh.

"Warner Bros. is very proud to be RADA’s Principal Partner and we’re delighted that our close links include direct financial and mentoring support for a number of RADA students through Warner Bros. Creative Talent," said Berger. "It remains as essential as ever to nurture and develop future generations of diverse talent for the creative industries."

For a decade, Warner Bros.’ support has helped to embed film training into RADA’s classical curriculum, developing the craft of students who go on to work in high-profile roles in creative industries across the globe, and – over the past five years – Warner Bros. Creative Talent has directly provided scholarships for 22 RADA students.
