Experience Opportunity

Casting for Theatre with Christopher Worrall

In this three hour group workshop, actors will have the chance to hone their audition technique, focusing on Casting for Theatre.

In advance of the workshop, actors will be sent an extract from a contemporary play to prepare and read in front of the group. Everyone will have the chance to perform their scene and rework it with feedback from Christopher. The evening will take a relaxed approach with plenty of time for questions and answers.
