Tommy Goes to Oxford!

Open until: June 20th!

Hey there!

Last month I was informed that I have formally been accepted in to the British American Drama Academy's prestigious "Midsummer in Oxford" Shakespeare summer intensive!  This means that for three weeks I will be studying classical Shakespearean performance at Oxford University from both American and British leading actors and professors!

I can't even begin to express how important this is to me- as an aspiring actor, and Shakespeare enthusiast, it is my goal in life to learn all that I can and gain as much as experience as I can in regards to Shakespeare, his works, and to be able to know and perform (what is essentially) some of the most important theatre and literature in the world.  Needless to say, there is no better place to learn this, and there is no opportunity more important for me as an actor and Shakespeare scholar than at BADA.  If you can help me achieve my goal, you are truly a saint in my eyes, so thank you truly for any and all help!
