Robbie Voigt (BA Theatre Studies, ’22) has been accepted into the Musical Theatre Master of Fine Arts program at LAMDA, the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Among the first to be selected for the program, Voigt will move to London to commence his studies in September. On graduating in 2025, Voigt will join the ranks of the school’s acting alumni including Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ruth Wilson, David Oyelowo, and Sam Claflin, among many others.
“‘Are you ready for this?’ That was the first thing I asked myself when applying for LAMDA, and the last thing the audition panel asked before I left my callback,” says Voigt. “The answer is a resounding yes. I am thrilled to be furthering my studies at one of the most recognized drama schools in the world. I would like to acknowledge my mentors Philip Bennett, Eric Ashley, and the incredible faculty I encountered while at TFTV: Greg Pierotti, Claire Mannle, Brent Gibbs, and of course, Wolfe Bowart. All of them saw something in me, and each one of them had a hand in getting me where I am today.”
While studying at TFTV, Voigt appeared in multiple Next Performance Collective and Studio Series productions, including the first annual New Directions Festival, and the devised works From the Fishbowl and Sinkers under the direction of Wolfe Bowart. On screen, Robbie starred in several films including Punchline, a dark comedy directed by James Valacich (BFA Film & Television, ’22) that premiered at I Dream in Widescreen. Also active in the Tucson theatre scene, Voigt most recently appeared in One Twig at a Time, the magical physical theatre production by Wolfe Bowart, at the Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre.
“After having worked with Robbie on three productions, it’s clear to me that he is the kind of actor who respects the craft, has the willingness to dig deep and to do the homework, and to repeat and repeat while keeping it fresh and in the moment,” says Wolfe Bowart. “Incredibly proud of Robbie as he embarks on this new chapter.”
