We are really pleased to welcome back Casting Director Lucy Jenkins!

The audition process can be stressful and mystifying and this workshop will try to disperse any angst and de-mystify the process, the idea is that it is a safe space to share ideas, be playful and have some fun!

In this online workshop, Lucy will send out sides for you to prepare a few days beforehand. After an intro chat from Lucy, you will be sent off into break out rooms with a partner to rehearse your scene. You will then come back to the main Zoom room where you will be able to perform your scene twice. There will be time for a Q&A at the end.
