|Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts|
The Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts (W.A.D.A.) is a wizarding school that provides education for young witches and wizards who seek a theatrical or performance career. The school was founded sometime after 1928, as no wizarding stage schools existed that year for a then-11 Celestina Warbeck to attend. Professor Herbert Beery began teaching at the Academy after leaving the post of Herbology Professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Four graduates of W.A.D.A. named Beckett, Virginia, Samuel, and Dobby put on free puppet shows based on Beedle the Bard's The Tale of the Three Brothers and The Fountain of Fair Fortune at Carkitt Market during the late 1990s.
Behind the scenes
- W.A.D.A. is a reference to R.A.D.A. (The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts) in London, England. Many of the stars of the Harry Potter films trained at R.A.D.A., including Ralph Fiennes, Kenneth Branagh, Alan Rickman, Michael Gambon, John Hurt, and Fiona Shaw.
