We are delighted to welcome Leah Lawry-Johns who is currently Kate Dowd's Casting Assistant.

This workshop offers the opportunity to master the process from the moment you walk through the door - what is expected of an actor in the room, and how to hone technical audition skills. There will be opportunity for questions to be answered as they come up during the workshop as well as a Q & A towards the end of the session.

Having looked at your Spotlight CV and Showreel, Leah will send you a specific scene to prepare, two-three days before the workshop. Each actor will have the opportunity to 'audition' for the group and Leah will offer feedback and the opportunity for participants to work the notes into a second reading.

Leah will be joined by voice coach, Matt James, who will begin the workshop with a vocal warm-up, focusing on audition preparation.
