We are excited to welcome Naomi Downham to her first workshop at TAG!!

Naomi is currently Senior Casting Assistant at The Royal National Theatre, having started her career as a Junior Agent at Lou Coulson Associates.  

This workshop offers an opportunity to discover how the casting process works at the National, to read for Naomi and receive honest feedback and advice. Prior to the workshop Naomi will send out a selected duologue for members to prepare. The workshop will involve a short movement warm up & extended pair work. Each actor will work with a partner, read their scene, and then have the opportunity to rework and explore the text again, following feedback or notes from Naomi.

Naomi will then lead an open discussion and actors will have the opportunity to ask questions arising from the workshop, about the process at the NT and casting for theatre more generally.  

Naomi works across all three theatres on the South Bank as part of the NT Casting Department, and her most recent credits include Athena (Yard Theatre, dir. Grace Gummer), Jekyll & Hyde (Schools Tour, dir. Kirsty Housley). Co-credits include: The Normal Heart (Olivier Theatre, dir. Dominic Cooke), Death of England: Face to Face (Film, dir. Clint Dyer) & The Ocean at The End of the Lane (Dorfman Theatre, dir. Katy Rudd).
