London Theatre

Dates: 2 May–15 June 2023
Application Deadline: 15 November 2022

London was recently cited by National Geographic as the most influential city in the world for “cultural experiences.” Not only does it provide visitors the most varied and sophisticated theatre experience available, it also offers museums, cathedrals, symphonies, palaces, gardens, and unique neighborhoods established long before the United States became a country. Participants in the London Theatre Study Abroad program will live in the heart of this vibrant city of eight million for six weeks, studying and attending productions at the famed National Theatre, Globe Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and mainstream West End theatres, as well as many smaller “fringe” theatres.
