Day in The Life of....

These friendly, informal sessions are held in our auditorium before mattinee performances. They give our members the chance to ask questions of guests from visiting production companies. We get a variety of guests from the main star, to the swing to the company manager, all of whom share anecdotes and tales of their time on their current production to their careers and lives.

Script Reading

Our reading group meet on Tuesday mornings and read a variety of texts both classical and new and also get opportunities to read pieces of new writing and provide feedback on the work.

Away Days

Our Away Days give our members the opportunity to take part in activitries and explore other cultural venues within the city. Be it art at the Baltic or singing at the Sage, there's something for everyone within our calendar.
