Richard Digby Day to visit Pomona College Theatre
Richard Digby Day, Principal of the London Dramatic Academy will be visiting the Pomona campus and our Theatre Department next Wednesday, February 8th. He will conduct a master class in our large studio at 10am and will deliver a public talk on “Why Shakespeare?” in the Allen Theatre at 3pm. Richard has taught and lectured in many programs and universities in the United Kingdom and North America.
Over the years, many of our students in the theatre department have spent their semester abroad participating in the LDA program, and Richard is a frequent and most welcome visitor to our campus. He is a superb teacher and his work with our students on their monologues and soliloquies is always an extraordinary experience.
Moreover, Richard is most compelling, entertaining and provocative speaker and his talk on Shakespeare promises to be most apt in a time in which even Shakespeare’s authorship has once again been called into question. All are invited and urged to attend Richard Digby Day’s public talk and to sit in on his morning master class.
