Jade on BBC Radio 4

Good luck to Jade Briggs - one of our Junior Theatre Company members who is off to the BBC tomorrow.

Last term Jade and others in her group studied acting for radio (using the Revolting Rhymes as material - a short radio play to soon be released!). Within weeks of her classes, Jade booked a named role in the 8th season of BBC Radio 4's 'Homefront' war time drama. 

Well done Jade! We will pop a link up to her show when it becomes available.

Casting Director Kate Bone holds workshop

Sunday 13th December - students work with Casting Director Kate Bone from Nina Gold Casting. 

Have a look in the gallery for all the pics.

Kate works on casting young people in high profile roles. The company she represents recently cast all the young leads in Star Wars! 

The acting students gathered on a chilly Sunday to learn about auditioning for camera. The actors aged 6-16 were a mixed group of professional (already having worked in film, TV and the West End) and aspiring professionals - but all worked super hard and made a great impression!
