GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The illustrious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art opened its doors to 11 students from the U.S. and one from Canada. Through the Performing Arts Abroad program, SF State theatre majors Allison Doody and Danielle Schreiner were selected to participate in RADA’s comprehensive dramatic arts seminar this summer. Doody, a senior, traveled to London for an intensive week-long crash course in roots and evolution of English theatre called “The Ages and Stages of English Drama.” In collaboration with The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Performing Arts Abroad developed the five-day-long program on the progress of dramatic art. Doody was one of only 12 students accepted to participate in the program, Ben Abbott, outreach coordinator for PAA, said in an e-mail. “The program showed me how theater is performed in England versus the United States,” Doody said. “By jumping into this program I saw I can perform consistently, anywhere.”
