This unique workshop gives performers the opportunity to perform and work with one of the most exciting producers and casting directors. Performers will be given the chance to perform their song to Danielle and the rest of the participants and observers. Danielle will then work on the song with the performer focusing on the acting through the song and also the performer’s approach to their auditions.
Each performer will be given around 10-15 minutes each to work with Danielle in front of the group.
Please note that whilst the workshop is open to everyone to observe, participants must be of a suitable standard and have relevant performance experience.
Danielle is a freelance producer and casting director. She won Best Producer at the Off West End Awards 2012, was nominated Producer of the Year at the Stage Awards 2015 and was listed as one of the top ten producers of Musical Theatre in 2016 in The Stage.
