In 1993, the Free State of Bavaria set up the Bayerische Theaterakademie on the initiative of August Everding with the intention of facilitating the artistic training of a wide range of theatrical professions under one roof. This Academy was based at the Prinzregententheater in Munich. Since the 2014/2015 season, the Academy has been directed by Professor Hans-Jürgen Drescher. With eight courses of study currently on offer and three professionally equipped theatres (Prinzregententheater, Akademietheater, Akademiestudio), the Theaterakademie August Everding is the largest training centre for stage professions in the German-speaking areas.

Depending on the course, students conclude their studies with a Bachelor or a Master of Arts degree or a diploma. The Academy’s cooperation partners are the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich, the Ludwig Maximilians-Universität München, the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and the University of Television and Film in Munich, at one of which students are enrolled, depending on their course of studies. In addition, there are production partnerships with the Bavarian State Opera, the Residenztheater, the Gärtnerplatztheater and the Munich Radio Orchestra as well as with other Bavarian, supraregional and international theatres and festivals.
