We do theatre differently.


The Workshop

This full-day workshop will begin with Stuart discussing the audition process based on his decades of experience as a casting director – how to break down the script, analyze a scene, approach the character and make clear choices. He’ll also talk about common mistakes actors make in the audition room and how to avoid them, as well as offering valuable information on the casting process from the casting director’s perspective; what they are looking for and how they make their decisions. The insight and perspective gained from this discussion will then be applied practically, with each actor working one-on-one with Stuart on a pre-assigned scene, culminating in an on camera audition with Stuart offering feedback and notes. The day will wrap up with a Q&A session. All participants will receive private links to the video of their auditions.

100% of the proceeds from this workshop go to Reality Curve Theatre’s next production, and all participants will receive 1 complimentary ticket to the show.
