What are the directors looking for at audition ?

 

Our experienced directors and tutors are looking for enthusiastic actors to work with, who are willing to learn and who show a natural ability in front of an audience and work well as a team. Experience is not necessary and directors look forward to working with complete beginners or those who have had previous experience. 

What Happens if I am offered a place in a cast.

If you are successful and offered a part within the cast, we will send you further information about the performance, Class Act Drama Centre, the centre’s membership details and registration forms to complete and consider should you wish to accept your place.  If you have not been successful on this occasion we may offer you a part in an alternative group, or retain your details for further castings that we are working on.  It is with regret that due to availability we cannot offer every child a place within a cast. However, we will inform every candidate of our decision

Class Act Drama Centre workshop classes & theatre projects are not reliant on external funding.  Due to continual cuts in arts funding and to ensure continuity and the success of projects subscriptions are charged. Each member of the drama class will have a membership subscription equating to £ 8.50 to £9.75 ( depending on venue hire charges ) per week for their training and participation in the project. If successful all members are guaranteed a speaking role. Successful siblings will be offered a discounted rate. There are 5 scholarship places that provide free training for successful members who are not in a financial position to contribute to subscriptions. Subscriptions include weekly training in a class, tuition, rehearsal, room hire & access to script materials. Full details will be supplied to all successful candidates under no obligation. Shows & casting are at directors discretion

Funding for scholarships

 

There are 5 scholarship places that provide free training for successful members who are not in a financial position to contribute to subscriptions. Funding is competitive, will require means testing and cannot be guaranteed. Funding for individual scholarships may be offered as a full or partial scholarship and is offered by the contributions of private individuals into Class Act Drama Centre’s scholarship fund.
