We raised $1000 in donations from the use of our upstairs space and our donation pot at The Ambitious Act!
After putting out a call for everyone's current projects on Instagram, we decided to put the money towards Between The Buildings Theatre Company. They are new on the scene and will be putting on a show in June. Congrats guys!

Habits Mindset = Breakthroughs
Wednesday 29 & Thursday 30 May
Come and hear insights from Andy, share and discuss your own methods, as well as pick up some new tools for your acting craft.
This is a free event with 30 spots each night so don't miss this opportunity.
The Intensive will be covering the regular Actor skills - auditions, scene work, characters, breaking down scenes.
But also a really important area that we all know about, read about and hear about but only a small percentage of people actually stick at -- our Mindset!
Circumstances can stop us, but it doesn't need to be that way. It actually takes real intention and serious action and it doesn't need to be stressful. We will discuss strategies to get our Mindset clear.
