AAUK Workshop with National Theatre senior casting assistant Chloe Blake 28th November

Get the chance to practice your audition skills in person with Chloe Blake, senior casting assistant at the National Theatre. We'll be looking specifically at text of American playwrights from recent productions at the NT. Honest feedback and notes will be given prior to a second read. Everyone will participate and observe and there will be a chance for a Q&A at the end.

When: Monday 28th November
Time: 7pm to 10pm
Where: Mixing Networks Studios, 2nd Floor, 36 Spital Square, London, E1 6DY
Price: £15.00

• Chloe will give us a selection of scripts to choose from before the workshop.
• She asks that we choose a role that appeals, either because you'd love to play it, it’s your usual casting, or it’s a challenge and something you'd never conventionally play, just whatever you'd like to have a play within the room.
• If you would like to do a monologue, keep it to 1-2 minutes.
• If you would like to do a scene with a reader, keep the scene 2-3 minutes.
• If you would like to prepare a scene with someone else, keep the scene to 5 minutes.
• Chloe would like you to be as familiar with the text as possible, but this is not a memory test at all, script in hand is fine.
