Practitioners Panel

ClassAction is aiming to challenge and blow apart the notion of ‘an old boy’s network’ as we build a current, active and live network of alumni who are ready to offer advice, encouragement and inspiration to our current practitioners. 

This maybe via 1-1’s on social media, commenting on audition speeches and assisting with interviews, coming back to STUDIO 816 to work with the current practitioners on performance work or returning for our annual PRACTITIONER’S PANEL.

The panel is made up of recent alumni who are currently training or who have just left some of the country’s top drama and dance schools.
Here we interrogate the industry as it is today, discuss vocational training, reflect on audition technique and offer encouragement to our current practitioners to ‘think bigger and aim higher’.
Schools represented at this year’s panel were: PPA, Performers, Evolution, Oxford, East 15, Lamda, Mountview, Peer Productions, GSA, Birmingham.
