Workshop -10 November 2020

Howyia Hansomes!

With the upcoming auditions for our next production: Seminars, we thought it was only appropriate to evolve this week’s workshops on auditioning!With the way the world is at the moment, and everything being very much virtual, it is now more important than ever to get your self-tape auditioning skills on point!

No better woman for the job than No Drama’s very own, long time working actor, the wonderful Sorcha Herlihy!

Sorcha has been working in the acting industry since 2002, with her very first-ever acting role in feature film “Evelyn” alongside Mr James Bond himself, Pierce Brosnan, since then she has been in many feature and short films, TV shows and commercial campaigns, and playing many roles in theatre, one of which was her favourite, leading lady Miss Hallie Jackson in No Drama theatres “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” (2018) this was Sorcha’s introduction into No Drama Theatre, and she is now part of the committee as our very own PR/Marketing Gal! (Hence a lot of lady gaga references lately😅)

“This weeks workshop will be considerating on the art of self-taping, and how important it is (now more than ever) to execute it to the best of your ability, giving you the greatest chance of getting that callback, or in the room with the director! We will also look into the things that hold us back most when auditioning and how we can use different skills to overcome the fear and struggles that come with putting yourself out there! We will do activities on getting to know a character quickly when necessary and getting the job done, as sometimes you are only giving a few hours to prep for last-minute auditions, especially in this industry!”

We also may have a special guest at the end of this workshop👀 so make sure and get yourselves on that zoom call 7pm tomorrow evening!

WORKSHOP – 27 OCTOBER 2020

Happy Banker dear friends!

Over the next coming months we will introduce you to the different facets of a production, from translating an idea to a concept, to budgeting, directing and producing.

With the talent, experience and knowledge No Drama has, we feel it’s time to spread the word.

Kicking off this block will be Mr. Jonathan Shortall, who will takes us to where all our productions start: the script. What are the components of a script? How do different authors approach creating one? What do we look for in a script were looking to produce and what do we do once we have one we like the look of? All these questions and more will be answered, with the usual games, chats and good times you’ve come to expect!
