We asked them each to prepare a 2 minute reading from their work – from novels in progress to poetry – and then worked on basic vocal skills, characterisation and interpretation for an audience. We looked at delivery of dialogue, descriptive pieces and how to work within the confines of metred verse. What an amazing morning. The two and a half hours flew by!
Dylis said: “It really was very informative and done in such a relaxed way that I did not feel like I was being lectured. God Bless and THANK YOU BOTH.”
Scott said: “I found the meeting held last Wednesday was conducted in a very friendly and relaxed manner. The two evaluations of the way each item was read were very perceptive and will certainly help the writing group at future monthly meetings.”
Whether you have acting experience or none at all, come spend a unique and exciting day with us. Enjoy a fun-filled theatre experience as we prepare performance pieces with scripts in hand (no learning of lines) for an end-of-day pop-up audience.
Our actors for a day who joined us on 9 Dec 2018 – our last session of 2018 had an awesome time with us. They found their voices, flexed their muscles, conquered their fears and entertained an enthusiastic audience.
Be an Actor for a Day is a popular theatre activity for all ages and Circle Productions can tailor-make sessions and add value to a host of corporate and training programmes.
Check out images below from Be an Actor for a Day 9 December 2018.

Final days of rehearsal now as we bring all the elements together to create a wonderful show that is both entertaining and educational! What does it mean to be 120 years old and how has the school and its environment changed?
We have packed a lot into just 80 minutes and we look forward to having an audience on Thursday.
This is the cast rehearsing Shosholoza – a song of mineworkers having to travel to and from their homes in Africa to work on the mines. In the nineties it became a song that celebrated a unified SA in the sporting world.
So, rehearsals are hotting up and our learners are enjoying this journey of discovery – both of the school’s heritage and legacy AND of their own talents and the joy of performance.
We are excited to have a past learner, Chantal Stanfield, join us for the show to perform her “hot off the press” number, Walk it Off. Our friends have been wonderful in supporting this show – and we say a big thank you to Trish and Annie of the Dance Project who have done our choreography for us.
Chantal has been learning the choreography long distance – check out the video clip here.
