NEW TERM OF EVENING CLASSES START on MONDAY 12th JULY. ENROL
All the evening classes have finished for this term. Casting
Director Nick Hamon attended the final night of the Level
1 Advanced Workshop providing information and tips to the
actors about his view of the casting process.
and informative Nick also gave each actor a general audition
and listed them on his casting files. Doing a general audition
is a special skill in itself and exploring general audition process
is the final exercise in the Level 1 Advanced Workshop.
The actors who participated in this workshop put an enormous
amount of effort into expanding their listening and impulse skills
through Rehearsal Room repetition exercises.
TV Director Richard
Jasek finished off the term for the Level 2 Advanced Workshop.
This was also an exciting night. Actors spent up to 20 minutes
in the audition room with Richard energetically exploring their
scenes. Richard was impressed with the versatility of the actors
and the strong ability to make large changes quickly. He also
commented on the significant improvement he saw in the work of
actors he had met previously. A clear vote of confidence in the
value of a good performance process. Richard Jasek's most recent
credits include McLeod's Daughters, Blue Heelers and a number
of children's shows for Jonathan Shiff Productions. Richard is
a talented actor friendly director.

VCE students will
be interested to hear that The Rehearsal Room (with Rod Winning
from Mystical Dog Productions) is producing a DVD and video on
monologue and solo performance. It is planned that the finished
product will be ready for release in November. Although shooting
is not yet complete the early stages of editing are underway.
This Friday 2nd June will be the last 'Drop-in Evening'.
Despite many enthusiastic voices supporting the concept not enough
actors have used the opportunity to make it worthwhile continuing.
So this last Drop-in-Friday is for free. Want to try a monologue
or a scene, a stand-up routine or song, come along and share
it - 7pm, The Rehearsal Room this Friday 2nd July.
Big Story Adventure
The opportunity to have a series concept pitched at the start
of the publishing season in the US was too good to pass up. So
over the last six weeks The Rehearsal Room has been working flat
out to create a pilot script for the series "Just Desserts".
This was a new concept which had been developed over the last
two years. First time series writer Patrick Sarell was enlisted
to provide a script from the concept created by Denis Meehan,
Darren Mort and Richard Sarell. Patrick opted for an adventurous
approach to the pushing the potential for fantasy elements. These
adventures were edited by the series creators and the script
is now somewhere in Los Angeles awaiting its fate. (Many thanks
to those who participated in a read-through of the text on the
eve of its submission.)
