New York, New York - August 11, 2016 – Ranked as No 1 for Drama in well-respected Guardian University Guide for 2016, the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama will stage its first New York Showcase on September 26 2016.

The Royal Welsh College, whose Patron is HRH The Prince of Wales, was founded in 1949 and is based in Cardiff, Wales, but trains young artists from around 30 countries. In June 2011, the Conservatory opened new £22.5 million performance and rehearsal spaces. The world-class facilities include the Richard Burton Theatre, the Linbury Gallery, a café bar, rehearsal studios and the Dora Stoutzker Hall.
Graduates of the Royal Welsh College include Anthony Hopkins (who needs no introduction), Anthony Boyle (currently Scorpius Malfoy in Cursed Child, JK Rowling’s smash London Harry Potter play), Tom Cullen (Lord Gillingham, Downton Abbey), Erin Richards (Gotham), Aneurin Barnard, (BBC’s War & Peace) and Iris Williams (international cabaret song stylist).
“The Royal Welsh College has always been an outward looking institution,” says Principal Hilary Boulding. “Diversity and cultural exchange is fundamental to the past, current and future success of our students. It is the huge generosity of our supporters that allows us to reach out internationally and celebrate our students’ talents in the heart of America’s theatreland.”
The College, the National Conservatoire of Wales, and part of the University of South Wales Group, operates within its international peer group of conservatoires and specialist arts colleges. It trains young artists drawn from around 30 countries to provide a constant flow of emerging talent into the music and theatre industries and related professions.
