Wedmore Theatre 

Wedmore Theatre’s NEW acting/directing workshops – with a professional tutor.

John Hartoch, a distinguished professional theatre director and formerly Head of Acting Courses at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, will be coming to Wedmore this summer to tutor a set of three workshops for WT Newsletter Subscribers who would like to have a go at directing, or to develop and hone their acting technique.

The workshops are for all ages from 14 – 60 years, although a small number of places will be offered to younger people who have acting experience, by invitation only. Participants can be complete beginners, or have any level of previous acting or backstage experience. They just need an interest in all its aspects of live theatre.

The three workshops will finish with the participants putting on a short show onstage, using the work they have created together during the sessions, and playing it to a small private audience, including the tutor. We shall be using, as our script, “The Railway Children”, which is also to be Wedmore Theatre’s major autumn production this year. Open auditions for this production will follow on immediately after the final workshop, for those who are interested in reading for a part.

The three workshops will take place in Wedmore Village Hall on the following dates:

Saturday June 30th from 3pm to 6.30pm
Saturday July 21st from 3pm to 6.30pm
Sunday July 22nd from 3pm to 6.30pm


The three workshops are linked, so applicants will need to be able to attend all three. The cost for the set of three will be £15 p.p. for over-18s, and £5 for 14-18s. Numbers will be limited, to ensure that participants get the maximum benefit, so early application is advised, and in any case should be received by Wedmore Theatre NO LATER THAN JUNE 29TH.
