Comedy Casting Workshop with Director Bex Rycroft

Comedy Casting Workshop with Director Bex Rycroft

Gain a practical insight into auditioning for Comedy casting agents in our workshop led by Director Bex Rycroft who has worked on BAFTA award winning shows. 

In this casting workshop, Bex Rycroft, will share her extensive knowledge and experience from working across a variety of sitcom, comedy drama and sketch shows. You will also focus on preparing for the casting process in comedy production and experience a typical audition faced by actors in the industry with individual feedback from Bex.

How the workshop works

The workshop will open with a brief introduction from the Director about their role in the industry and what they look for when working with Actors. This will be followed by a Q&A so you can ask any questions you may have. The Director will offer ideas and insights into the casting procedure, rehearsal process and improvisation with characters.

Bex will bring along a selection of TV scenes previously used in the industry for you to work through in the session. Actors will be given a brief time to rehearse scripts based on the tips and thoughts from the Director. The scenes will be performed during the class with further direction and feedback given to each Actor. There will be a final opportunity to read through and perform the scenes again.

The workshop will build your skills and confidence, whilst giving you a realistic idea of the process and industry expectations for actors.

No Venue

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
