David Hobbs

Master class series of theatre workshops starts on 30 April

The role of the actor takes centre stage in the first of our comprehensive 2022 professional development workshop series. The four-hour workshop, “The Actor at Work”, will be presented by David Hobbs starting at 10am on 30 April at the Bates Hall, Blackheath Community Centre.

This interactive workshop will include:

  • getting the part
  • rehearsing the part
  • performing the part
  • surviving the on-stage experience
  • meeting actors who have survived the experience.

Participants will be in the best of hands. David Hobbs is a trained stage director, actor, and instructor.
