Derry actors are to have the chance of a pre-audition workshop with an award winning Shakespeare actor, fresh from the West End, ahead of The Playhouse’s most ambitious 2013 production, ‘Titus Andronicus’.
Veteran actor Liam Brennan has extensive experience performing Shakespeare on the West End, and will take up lead role in ‘Twelfth Night’ on Broadway later this year. In a unique opportunity for local actors, Liam will ‘Take the Fear Out of Shakespeare’ at a free workshop on Saturday, March 23.
Directed by BAFTA award winning director Kenny Glenaan, ‘Titus Andronicus’ will open at The Playhouse in September, performed by a sixteen strong cast of professional and local actors. Twelve male and female roles will be cast locally with actors working alongside the cream of the crop.
“This is a very special opportunity for local emerging actors to train under an expert Shakespeare actor and then be seen by a BAFTA award winning Director, who it’s worth mentioning, will be filming in the city next year!” Kieran Griffiths, Playhouse 2013 theatre producer said.
“We are not just looking to take the fear out of Shakespeare, we will show how easy it is to deliver it!”
The workshop on Saturday, March 23, from 10am- 5pm is free and open to all. Booking is essential.
