March – April 2019

We’re holding castings today for Miss Dietrich Regrets by Gail Louw, directed by Ariella Eshed. Can’t wait to see all the incredible talent this Club has to offer!

Attendance for the readings has dropped off a little recently, and we’re keen to see more and more of you at them. It’s such a great opportunity to meet career professionals who you may have a synergy with. So many people are now working together because of an acquaintance made at a Club Reading, so please do come to as many as you can! They’re free, you get to see some great drama, have a glass of wine, and meet some fascinating new faces. And of course, it is so important to support your fellow professionals, so if you have been involved in a reading recently, it’d be great to see you at one/a few in the future!

Thanks of course to everyone who does attend, and those who attend regularly! It’s always lovely to catch up!
