Our last Rehearsal Room for the year held on Saturday 14 November in Auckland was a success. We were fortunate to have writer/director and experienced actress Jackie Van Beek facilitate on the day.
DEGNZ directors Mina Matheison, Claire Chitham, Jamie Lawrence and Sean Carley got the opportunity to workshop a scene from their scripts with actors from Equity New Zealand.
Overall, it was a excellent day with some interesting scripts workshopped and some great interaction between the directors and actors, who only found out who they were working with on the day.
A massive thanks to Jackie Van Beek, the four directors and all the actors who kindly volunteered their time to take part: Becky Kuek, Jimmy Hazelwood, Serena Cotton, Ruth Wynne, Terry Hooper, Katherine Mewett, Keisha Castle-Hughes and Tama Jarman.
The next Rehearsal Room will take place in February 2016 in Auckland.
