Recruitment workshops are fun and nobody is placed under any pressure but we'd love to get to know you and figure out how best we can give you some of the enjoyment of taking part. We'll be casting the shows listed above right after the workshop.
Of course, if you don't want to act but would like to help in other ways we'll be delighted to meet you. No experience necessary, total beginners and Oscar winners - all welcome!
