We are excited to welcome Television and Theatre Director Sarah Esdaile back to TAG!! Sarah is currently directing for Call the Midwife.

In this practical workshop Sarah will work with you on several aspects of auditioning or TV. From making bold choices to being able to truly listen to a director's notes - and act on them there and then. You will look at how to make the maximum impact when you have minimum preparation time, as well as facilitating the most fruitful possible chat about the script.

Sarah will work on how to really be in the moment and trust your instincts whilst in an environment you can only really gauge once in the room. Each participant will have a practice audition, focusing on whatever aspect of the process they like. The thorough feedback is what most participants value.

The workshop aims to provide an invaluable and practical set of tools and guidelines that can be immediately implemented and a new perspective on the whole process of auditioning. 

Sarah will receive your Spotlight CV prior to the workshop (please make sure it is up-to-date) and sides will be provided on the day.

Sarah has recently made the move from theatre to television where she has directed forty episodes of Eastenders and is soon to begin work on her second episode of Call the Midwife.

Sarah’s theatre credits include Abigail’s Party for ATG with Jodie Prenger as well as the 40th Anniversary production of Abigail's Party (Theatre Royal Bath & Tour) with Amanda Abbington, BFG for the Octagon Bolton, Talking Heads for Theatre Royal Bath and Tour, Single Spies at The Rose and PAXO - a one man show with Jeremy Paxman at The Pleasance Edinburgh.
