Bedlam Arts theatre group is launching a 12-week workshop for budding local actors.
The Northern Grit workshops will offer participants the chance to create, plan, learn, film and perform an original piece of work in front of industry professionals.
There will also be advice on acting skills and the industry from Emmerdale’s Matthew Wolfenden and Coronation Street’s Sacha Parkinson.
Lee Barnes, Creative Director at Bedlam Arts, said: “Only the top drama schools in London offer this opportunity but the north is becoming a leader in the industry so now is the time for people to put their talent out there.
“The actors will create the performance and we will film parts of the show so the agents can see how your talents transfer to the big screen.”
Workshops start the week commencing November 18 and cost £10 per session or £100 for all 12 sessions. For more information, contact Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
