August Everding's idea of creating an academic teaching theatre for stage vocations under one roof has been realised at the Bavarian Theatre Academy and now comprises eight courses of studies. Here, the real-life theatre situation is not only rehearsed, but actually staged at the Prinzregententheater and the Akademietheater (Academy Theatre). Solid preparation for theatre vocations is made possible in cooperation with Munich's four universities and three municipal theatres. Students at the Theaterakademie are registered at the university that offers their particular course under the auspices of the Theaterakademie.
The Theaterakademie August Everding is a unique teaching and learning theatre: a professional theatre that aims to provide networked, practical training. Here, theatre is taught through actually staging it. Theory and practice go hand in hand in the eight degree courses: Acting, Music Theatre/Opera Performance, Musical Performance, Stage Directing, Dramaturgy, Scenography and Costume Design, Wigs, Make-up and Special Make-up Effects for Stage and Screen and Cultural Journalism.
