19th October

Sonia will use her wealth of experience from working on the casting of major TV series to help guide you through the casting process, how the actor fits into this and how to come across in a professional manner.

Sonia will start by working on some fun drama games & impro’s. For the main part of the workshop Sonia will work with you on sides. This will create a mock audition environment with a focus on casting for TV and help you ensure that you go in and give the best audition that you can. Most of all you will be in a relaxed fun environment. 

Please bring two copies of a two-hander television scene (Film, Comedy or Drama). Please do not learn the scenes you are bringing in, as you won’t necessarily be doing this yourself. We will work with each other’s scenes in pairs. 

The workshop will finish with Q&A
