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.
