History of The Birmingham Theatre School
was founded by Sir Barry Jackson in the theatre that he built,
namely the Old Rep Theatre, which was also the first Repertory
Theatre in the world.
In 1942 Sir
Barry Jackson appointed Mary Richards, whom he had previously
worked with as an actress to take over as principal of the drama
school, establishing a new era in theatre training.
In 1990 Chris
Rozanski was appointed principal and has continued the legacy
of training that Sir Barry Jackson founded. Today The Birmingham
Theatre School has returned back to its former roots with quality
production and accessibility at the centre of its philosophy.

portfolio of courses has something to offer anyone considering
