In this workshop Nick Bagnall will invite actors to explore their craft. Stage technique, focus, the ability to stay Ďin the momentí; all will be revealed as Nick offers accessible skills to help actors come alive and retain integrity. This is a great opportunity to find out more about our resident theatre company, which is always looking for new members. A rare chance for less experienced actors to discover talents they didnít know they had, and for more experienced actors to refresh their practice.
Nick Bagnall has recently directed Pinterís Betrayal at Sheffield Crucible and has directed and taught at theatres including Birmingham Rep, The Royal Court, The RSC, National Theatre and West Yorkshire Playhouse.
He is joint Artistic Director of the Milton Rooms Malton.
