Acting Industry Showcase

Acting Industry Showcase

This 4 week Acting Industry Showcase course has been designed to offer conservatoire-style actor training for actors looking to take that next step. Using contemporary scenes suitable to each participant’s casting and skillset, the course will lay the foundation for skills needed to perform on stage and screen with confidence. Each element of the program is taught by expert teachers, professional actors and working directors with many years of experience in theatre and film between them. 

This acting course culminates in an intimate showcase for leading industry casting directors, film producers and agents. Students are encouraged to invite their own professional contacts. In addition to the industry showcase students will have the opportunity to perform for friends and family in a weekday matinee performance. Previous industry showcases have seen attendance by Nina Gold Casting and Film Director and Producer Jacqui Morris. In addition, students will work on a showreel and leave with a professional headshot.

This course is a rich, rewarding and intensive experience that will challenge and shape you as an actor. Working closely with your fellow actors you will form an acting troupe. Attendance in class is critical as is the learning of lines, extra reading and previous students have arranged external rehearsals in their own time.

Attendance on this course is by audition only. Auditions are self-tapes which are sent virtually and everyone is welcome to audition.

The Acting Industry Showcase incorporates one to one feedback sessions offered throughout the course to help you chart your progress and achieve your goals. Book your free audition today!
