Our Bold & Brave workshop programme takes the fear out of auditioning by choosing, reading and preparing your speeches in a small focused group of aspiring actors who are all in the process of applying for drama school. act up’s practitioners are all working professionals and bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and encouragement for actors about to start on their own journey. This six-week workshop will build your confidence and build a process for selecting drama school speeches. We limit the participants to between 6-8 people to allow for detailed feedback for everyone.
The workshop will cover:
Week 1: all participants will bring along between two to four modern / contemporary speeches that they like. These speeches will be read out to the group, you will discuss as a group casting and the suitability of each speech.
Week 2: all participants will bring along between two to four classical speeches that they like. These speeches will be read out to the group. As a group, you will discuss casting and the suitability of each speech. We will look at both the modern and classical speeches to make sure that both speeches show sufficient range for participants.
Week 3: This week is all about working on the modern / contemporary speeches with the group to showcase your work.
Week 4: This week is all about working on the classical speeches with the group to showcase your work.
Week 5: This week the group will start building towards the sharing in week six.
