Leading children's Casting Director Mrs Jo Hawes visiting us from the UK to deliver casting workshops for our students. Mrs Hawes has worked as a casting director for twenty three years and has cast over one hundred West End and touring productions including Les Miserables, Matilda, Miss Saigon, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Mary Poppins. Mrs Hawes is a published author, her book Children in Theatre is said to be be an essential read for parents of children in theatre.
The workshop is independent of any audition. This workshop is specifically designed to empower children and young people and to help them understand what creative teams are looking for, how to behave and how to use their nerves and to be confident. Many children are unsuccessful in the audition process because they have not shown their considerable talents to a panel of directors who only have a very short time in which to make a decision. During the workshop students will be given a wealth knowledge and practical information. The ultimate aim of this workshop is to ensure that students can understand good audition technique.
