We boast an alumni list far longer than any other theatrical training ground.
The impact of the ADC on British Theatre is almost inestimable; four of the five directors of the National Theatre (Sir Peter Hall, Richard Eyre, Sir Trevor Nunn and Nicholas Hytner) are alumni of the Theatre.
In the world of comedy too, names as diverse as Peter Cook, Monty Python, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie to more recent alumni such as David Mitchell and Robert Webb all learnt their craft here.
Many of our performers today will be the famous names of tomorrow.
